London Design Festival
V&A and St Paul’s Cathedral - London, UK
The V&A hosts a broad range of commissioned activity, spread throughout the museum and including installations, events, talks, and workshops. Meanwhile, landmark location St Paul’s showcases the mind-boggling Endless Stair, an Escher-like game of perception and circulation in timber that playfully contrasts with the religious and corporate environment of stone and glass in the city.
Also, in collaboration with Swarovski, 20 influential designers and design figures have each selected an object from the V&A galleries, using Swarovski lenses to magnify highlights or curiosities within its design. The detail might be hidden; it may be in combinations of objects, an uncovered texture, or may reveal or redefine a gallery view.
