David Adjaye, Alex Chinneck and Mischer’Traxler are among the designers set to create installations for London Design Festival 2015, which will include an electricity pylon turned on its head and a courtyard filled with mirrors
RELATED HISTORY : HOME – LONDON DESIGN EVENTS
A number of large-scale installations by Grafton Architects, London-based designers Matteo Fogale and Laetitia De Allegri and Mexican architect Frida Escobedo were also announced during a conference at the V&A.
All of them form part of over 350 events that will be held cross the city during London Design Festival will run between 19 and 27 September.
The London-based artist Alex Chinneck will construct a latticed-steel replica of an electricity pylon. The piece will appear as if shot into the ground. The 35-metre-tall sculpture weighing 15 tonnes will be tethered to lean at a perilous angle over an adjacent access road.
Somerset House will be used as a venue for the festival for the first time, and will host a courtyard installation by London-based architect David Adjaye for MINI, while other installations will occupy galleries at the V&A museum.
Tiny replica insects “made to appear live” will be captured inside 250 mouth-blown glass globes suspended from the ceiling of the V&A’s Norfolk House Music Room.
The Mexican Pavilion is based on the the Aztec city Tenochtitlan, built on top of a lake and will be open ahead of the London Design Festival at the end of May.
