London's Design Museum will allow the public to adopt an object as part of a crowdfunding campaign

The Design Museum have come up with an innovative new way to raise funds for their new home: members of the public can adopt an object from the museum. 

The museum recently left Shad Thames, and is moving to Kensington High Street, but needs a further £200,000 for the £1 million they need to cover construction costs. 

The campaign asks supporters to donate only £5 for an object, and in return they will receive a personalised thank you film showing their object being transported to the new site, as well as having their name displayed on the museum's website.

The films that will be sent to donors have been specially commissioned, and include a pair of Louboutin heels riding an escalator, and a Dyson vacuum cleaner crossing the road. 

Alongside the Adopt an Object campaign, the museum will appear at a number of famous London locations as a pop-up exhibition until the new venue opens on November 24. 

The closing of the Shad Thames venue is a significant moment for the museum, which was opened by Sir Terence Conran and Stephen Bayley in 1989, transforming it from its previous life as a banana ripening warehouse.
