The speakers for season three of By Design.

By Design | our speaker series

In partnership with Luke Irwin, we're delighted to present a third season of By Design, a public talk series in which leading designers discuss their practice, through the lens of a single object.

Join artist Cornelia Parker, architect Sophie Hicks, interior designer Martin Brudnizki, and milliner Stephen Jones in conversation at the Soane, and enjoy exclusive after-hours access to the Museum's many remarkable spaces.

Meet our speakers

Welcome to Sir John Soane's Museum

Discover the extraordinary house and museum of Sir John Soane, one of the greatest English architects, who built and lived in it two centuries ago. The museum has been kept as it was at the time of his death in 1837, and displays his vast collection of antiquities, furniture, sculptures, architectural models and paintings.

We're open Wednesday to Sunday, 10 to 5. Entry is free and you can visit by walking in on the day. Joining a highlights tour, or visiting as a group of eight or more, requires advanced booking.
