Designed to Shine - 100 years of Stainless Steel

Designed to Shine - 100 years of Stainless Steel
16 FEB — 13 OCT
Museums Sheffield: Millennium Gallery

In 1913, ‘rustless’ steel was discovered in the UK by Sheffield’s Harry Brearley. Over the following 100 years the production of stainless steel, in particular cutlery, reaffirmed Sheffield’s age-old reputation for quality metal wares. Despite huge changes to the industry and loss of jobs, Sheffield remains an important centre for specialist steel production. This brand new exhibition, part of a city-wide celebration of 100 years of stainless steel, explores a century of design and innovation, showcasing the diversity and quality of products made in stainless steel in Sheffield and beyond.
