Rawthmells, the RSA’s 21st century enlightenment coffeehouse, is a place where Fellows and members of the public can encounter new and inspiring ideas.

Through a system of changing displays, coffeehouse guests will be exposed to the best new ideas from our Fellowship, stories from our archive, briefs and designs from the Student Design Awards, the work of the Royal Designers for Industry appointed each year and stories from our Research and Impact centre.

Changing displays in the Gerard Room, the first room as you enter the coffeehouse, place a spotlight on the innovative and interesting work of Fellows around the world.
