Heatherwick Studio: Designing the Extraordinary
31 May – 30 September 2012
Sponsored by Ernst & Young
As part of a season of events celebrating British design, the V&A presents the first major solo exhibition exploring the work of one of the most inventive design studios practicing today. Heatherwick Studio has earned a renowned international profile through projects spanning the disciplines of architecture, furniture and product design, to engineering, sculpture and urban planning.
This exhibition brings together objects of inspiration and material samples, models, prototypes, full-scale fragments and finished pieces to reveal the Studio’s creative processes and spirit of curiosity. Visitors to the V&A at this time can also enjoy free entry to a spectacular site-specific installation created by Heatherwick Studio for the Museum’s John Madejski Garden.
