LDF At The V&A!
London Design Festival has statrted with a bang and this week I am busy running around London to make sure I can see as many events as possible. Could be mission impossible trying to see them all but it is worth a try.

Last week I managed to attend a press preview at the V&A and saw all of the lovely installations, ready for the LDF. Here are my Favourites:
‘Timber Wave’ is a fantastic and interesting installation by Amanda Levete Architects and Arup,This is situated right in front of the V&A’s grand entrance. Isn’t it beautiful?
One of my definite favourites, ‘Textile Field’ by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, in collaboration with Kvadrat, (do have a look at the latter as on their website there is a fun animation of this installation). This amazing installation is placed within the Raphael Gallery and is truly impressive, made of coloured textiles and foam. Visitors are invited to lounge on this expansive sensual field within the magnificent environment of the Raphael Court. This was the perfect lie down the day after Heart Home’s launch party π
‘Beyond the Valley‘ is a fabulously designed and upholstered station within the British Galleries where you can sit back, relax and enjoy a unique interactive experience in such beautiful surroundings. Have fun interacting by using your ipad or iphone and play around with some creations. Cannot wait to go back and have some fun!
Make sure to grab yourself one of these stylishly designed maps from Johnson Banks. The five designers in question are: Tom Dixon, Lulu Guinness, Annie Lennox, Dame Judi Dench and A.S. Byatt.
