10 Designers in the West Wing is a curated exhibition of 10 major international designers as part of London Design Festival. Each designer created room installations of their new work, here we take a look at some of our favourites.
Faye Toogood – The Drawing Room (main picture). The genteel traditions of the English drawing room have been redrafted by designer Faye Toogood. Visitors are invited to relax in an environment that evokes a derelict country house, the surrounds have been literally drawn in and the smells incredibly intense.
Patternity with Paperless Post. A space to connect with others and make memorable moments. An immersive installation in which to experience their exclusive new patterns.
Alex Rasmussen – The Wave. Santa Barbara designer Alex Rasmussen surrounds visitors with a giant wave: 700+ anodized aluminum panels, invisibly fastened to form a structural swell, reflect crystalline shades of Pacific blue. Alex’s factory, Neal Feay, fabricated the modular installation and sent it to London via FedEx.
Luca Nichetto with Hem– Alphabeta Lamps. Nichetto’s modular Alphabeta lamps reflect a playful functionality. Just like combining letters of the alphabet to create words, the configurable pendant lamps – with a nod to Scandinavian minimalism – are composed of myriad colours and shapes, playfully here the lights were hooked up to a piano so each key turned a light on, encouraging visitors to engage with the display.
