London Design Festival

The London Design Festival is an annual event, held to celebrate and promote London as the design capital of the world and as the gateway to the international creative community.
The London Design Festival this year ran 19 – 27 September.

I visited V&A, Design Junction and Designersblock.

Ogham wall at V&A

As a basis for exploring the ancient and the contemporary, the installation translates this ancient language into an architectural construct of three metre high cast concrete ‘fins’ standing in the space of the Tapestry Gallery.

Although many articles mentioned this exhibition, it was quiet.
Perfect location.

Each of the 20 letters represents the name of a sacred tree, where the individual pattern of the bark is etched onto the surface treatment of the concrete.

enjoy the varied rhythm and angles of the elements and the experience of light and shade. The installation aims to explore the space that Ireland occupies, one that is embracing design, innovation and technology while continuing to reference their embedded culture and heritage.

I don’t have much knowledge about Ogham or Ogram trees but I could feel dignity of the heritage.
