The Design Museum spotlights Dr David Swann’s ABC Syringe in its November re-launch

David Swann, ABC Syringe

Dr David Swann‘s invention ABC Syringe (A Behaviour Changing Syringe) has been selected by The Design Museum for its long-term collection. The Museum will specially highlight David’s groundbreaking design in its re-launch events marking the move to its spectacular new home on High Street Kensington, London. The ABC syringe is featured in a short film commissioned for the re-launch, alongside such other iconic objects as the E-type Jag, Paul Smith ties and a space invaders machine. You can watch the film here. It went live across social media platforms for the Museum’s launch week from 24 November.

The ABC Syringe has potential life-saving impact: it changes colour in order to deter harmful re-use when the syringe is no longer sterile. The Syringe was the winner of the 2014 World Design Impact Prize.

Professor David Swann is Subject Group Leader for Product & Furniture Design at the Sheffield Institute of Arts, Sheffield Hallam University.
