Fear and Love: Reactions to a Complex Worldis the official catalogue that accompanies the opening exhibition of the new Design Museum.

In this book, eleven designers from around the world – including OMA, Hussein Chalayan, Kenya Hara and Neri Oxman – explore a spectrum of contemporary themes The result is a diverse portrait of the world that includes sentient robots, networked sexuality, slow fashion and settled nomads. These are explored through the eyes of the designers themselves and through a series of essays by renowned writers and thinkers The result captures the emotionally charged mood of the present and suggests that design is a way of looking at the world, and a way to change it
