Heatherwick studio: ‘Designing the extraordinary’, at The V&A.
The Heatherwick Studio’s V&A exhibition was very inspiring. Here is a video of Thomas talking about the exhibition from the Guardian’s website. The detail and depth to the working of his ideas means that the execution is spectacular and I feel extremely challenged to really think ideas through. Heatherwick’s collaboration with Danny Boyle over the creation of the Olympic cauldron was inspired by Boyle’s cinematic approach to the ceremony. Heatherwick focused on the moment of the cauldron being lit. When seeing the model of the cauldron what stunned me was looking down on it showed how each petal was unique and fitted perfectly with the others to form the cauldron, brilliant. That attention to detail ran through every project.
