Heatherwick Studio: Designing the Extraordinary

Heatherwick Studio: Designing the Extraordinary

31 May – 30 September '12

London

The V&A presents the first major solo exhibition exploring the work of one of the most inventive and experimental design studios practising in Britain today.

The exhibition showcases the wide variety of projects conceived by British designer Thomas Heatherwick and his studio. On display are over 150 objects, from an original seed-tipped rod from the UK Pavilion Seed Cathedral at Shanghai World Expo (2010) to a full scale mock-up of the rear end of the new London double-decker bus (2012).

The exhibition examines two decades of projects, from examples of Thomas Heatherwick’s exploratory student work, through to the architectural commissions which have earned the studio their international reputation and their most current projects to date. The exhibition is designed by Heatherwick Studio and spans the disciplines of architecture, engineering, transport and urban planning to furniture, sculpture and product design.


"We are delighted to be showing the first solo exhibition of the work of Thomas Heatherwick and his studio. He is an extremely exciting and forward thinking contemporary designer whose work spans a fascinating breadth of disciplines. He is constantly challenging us with his ideas and pushing boundaries in art and design."
-Martin Roth, Director of the V&A
