Explore how everyday life, art and design intertwine in Designology, an exhibition about the aesthetics of public transport at London Transport Museum.

Visit the show, and you'll see posters from the golden age of travel; historic maps, tickets and signage; and visit a pop-up studio where you can learn more about contemporary design innovation.

Objects on display for the first time include an 1834 Shillibeer Woolwich Omnibus timetable; original architectural drawings of Arnos Grove and Sudbury art deco stations; and a 1994 magnetic ticket hall station model kit.

You can also see designer Wayne Hemingway's new TfL uniforms, learn more about the tube's iconic moquette fabrics, and get creative with crayons to 'Pimp My Bus Stop', exploring ideas to make waiting more fun.

Designology — Shaping London runs at London Transport Museum from 20 May. An exciting events programme including Friday Lates and Late Debates runs alongside the show.
