British Design 1948-2012: Innovation in the Modern Age is at the V&A until 12 August.
The period of the survey is determined by the London Olympics of 1948 and 2012 - dates which, as Rowan Moore points out in his review are somewhat arbitrary in terms of British design. Reviews have been generally positive - such a survey could hardly fail to offer genuine pleasures - but qualified by the view that flag waving celebration slightly overshadows any attempt at critical analysis.
