Timber Wave

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Spatial Design / Installations / 2012

Timber Wave was installed at the entrance of the V&A for the London Design Festival 2011. The most ambitious commission of the festival to date, the 12m-high installation showcased the interest in design and making that is at the heart of the V&A’s collections and London’s creative industries. Timber Wave was about taking the V&A out onto the street, celebrating the festival’s residency at the museum and American red oak as a material. Techniques usually used in furniture making were applied at a vast scale and its repetitive motif reflects the decorative and didactic tradition of the V&A.
