|Amanda Levete Architects extend the V&A entrance for London Design Festival 2011|
This year's edition of the London Design Festival is set to be better than ever, with a host of innovative installations and exhibitions planned to take place this September. WGSN-homebuildlife has a sneak preview of the highlights, as revealed this morning by co-founders John Sorrell and Ben Evans.
Amanda Levete Architects have been commissioned to create an extension to the main entranceway of the V&A Museum, which traditionally acts as the hub of the Festival. Called Timber Wave, it will be a sculptural installation made of American hardwood, with each segment calibrated to maximise its structural capabilities.
Renowned US gallerist Murray Moss will work with Materialise to place a series of 3D printed objects across the museum, while designer and architect Ron Arad will create a piece for the courtyard garden, supported by Veuve Clicquot. Up and coming design talent will be supplied by graduates from the University of Arts London, who will have their work on show alongside existing collections across the museum.
