THE CONRAN Foundation, set up in 1993, is a "living" archive of fin-de- siecle industrial products. Every year it stages an exhibition curated by a individual with a "non-museum" background. This year it is the photographer David Constantine, a founding director of the Motivation Charitable Trust. Unsurprisingly, his objects include photographic favourites such as the Olympus LT Zoom Camera, along with a Psion 5 Personal Organiser, a Saracen 2WD Electric Wheelchair and much more.
Conran Foundation Collection 1998 runs 4 December-31 January 1999 at the Design Museum, Shad Thames, London SE1, 11.30-6 daily (0171-378 6055)
THOSE WHO want to do more than dream of a white Christmas should head to Mission in London, whose latest exhibition, Carte Blanche, consists of objects in cool shades of pale. Look out for luminous furniture by Maiko Tsutsumi, pod storage systems by Kirsten Jones, and Hive's chic felt notebooks; plus snowy rugs and furniture.
Carte Blanche runs until 14 January 1999 at Mission, 45 Hereford Road, London W2. 0171-792 4633
