Thomas Heatherwick at V&A

Forget Royal pageant, forget the other exhibition currently at the V&A "Britsh Design", it's the Thomas HeatherwickDesigning the Extraordinary exhibition which makes me really proud to be in Britain right now.  

We went last Sunday afternoon with kids and teenagers in tow.  The exhibition is located in the smaller gallery space near the museum front.  It took us some time to actually get in - and everyone off Heatherwick's Spun chairs in the lobby....





Plus, a spiral winding Heath-Robinson-esque device allowed you to wind and deliver your own exhibition leaflet.




Another chance to swirl in the outdoor central courtyard space...
