The retrospective will celebrate the global service's tenth UK anniversary

London’s Design Museum has announced what is set to be one of the most exciting events of 2022; a new Netflix exhibition…

As the world’s biggest streaming service, it was only a matter of time until Netflix’s rise to the top became worthy of a retrospective. London’s Design Museum has taken things into its own hands, having announced the launch of an immersive new exhibition revolving around the billion-dollar media company.

Marking the streaming giant’s tenth UK anniversary, the exhibition will, as reported by the Museum, celebrate ‘Netflix’s design journey’, and offer an insightful look into how the platform – originally a mail-order DVD company – became a global phenomenon with over 221.8 million subscribers worldwide.

Set to draw on a multitude of Netflix ‘fan favourites’, the Museum is yet to announce a launch date, but says that the showcase will take place in summer 2022.

‘Our new immersive exhibition will take a closer look at the key elements of the Netflix experience, its evolution over time, and our underpinning design philosophy,’ says Vice President of Product & Studio Design at Netflix, Steve Johnson.

‘When something is designed well, it makes life easier, gives us joy and brings people together. And just like entertainment, design can fundamentally change the way we live our lives.

‘At Netflix, building an intuitive, seamless experience has been at the heart of our business for the last 25 years: from our very early days as a mail-order DVD company, to our role today bringing entertainment to homes and devices around the world. Design plays a key role in connecting our members with great stories.’

If the exhibition is anything as good as the platform’s wildly popular productions (Bridgerton, we’re looking at you), we’re sure it will be a hit.
