Every object produces particular sounds when used, sounds which can themselves become distinct identifying features. Such sonic hallmarks range from a phone’s ring to the rumble of a car engine or the click of a keyboard. To integrate this acoustic dimension of our exhibition pieces – particularly in view of the planned visible-storage study room – the Design Museum is adding sounds to its collection. By incorporating this archive into the Sound of Design app, sound will become part of the visitor's multimedia experience and breathe fresh life into exhibits that may otherwise appear somewhat removed from the real world. The first version of the application should be available from December 2018 and will be gradually phased in throughout the collection.
