Our purpose is to increase understanding and appreciation of the use and significance of plastics in design during the 20th and 21st centuries. MoDiP has a changing programme of two themed exhibitions per year drawn from its extensive collections.
The plastics collection forms the basis of a specialist research resource offered by the Arts University Bournemouth and together with loan collections from the Plastics Historical Society and the Worshipful Company of Horners, MoDiP presents a comprehensive history of the use of natural and synthetic plastics in design.
