Troika’s ‘Palindrome’ is a kinetic object that recognises the rich collection of the V&A with over 3,000 years’ worth of cultural artefacts from the world’s most established cultures. At the centre of Palindrome is the iconic V&A monogram, originally designed by Alan Fletcher. It is made of three independently revolving parts. The logo deconstructs and reconnects itself with each half turn forming a playful palindrome legible from either side, while the wheels produce a gentle ticking sound reminiscent of Victorian automaton clockwork.
