~ V&A canopy of traffic cones// Heathwick Spun chairs

One of the best museums in London is definately the V&A. The exhibitons on at the moment are fantastic, 'Heatherwick Studio' - as part of a season of events celebrating British design, 'British Design 1948-2012' Celebrate the best of British post-war art and design from the 1948 ‘austerity’ games to the summer of 2012.
The canopy of traffic cones overhead as you enter the museum is definately a showstopper. The sun was shining (for part of the day), so I was able to get a few photo's of the shadows cast which I think are really interesting too. The Spun chairs by Heatherwick Studio in the central courtyard were fantastic, when your feet leave the ground either a sense of delight or fear comes over you - it was great watching people interact with the chairs.




Visitors to the V&A can experience one of the Studio's signature furniture designs, with Spun chairs available for visitors to use in the Grand Entrance and Sackler Centre. This comfortable and functional chair allows the sitter to rock from side to side, or even spin round in a complete circle, and is suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
