London gallery Spring Projects' latest exhibition, Loaded, explores the phenomenon of 'design art', using examples by El Ultimo Grito, Hussein Chalayan, Jaime Hayon, Nienke Klunde, Karen Ryan and Studio Makkink & Bey. The show is divided into three areas of consideration: Imaginary Landscapes, Cultural Morphing and Modified Utilities.

The name of the exhibition refers to the loaded meaning to be found in the pieces; for further explanation, there's an interesting accompanying essay on the subject written by design critic and author Alex Coles.
