The Power of Making London Design Festival at the V&A

The V&A Museum has installed an impressive welcome to London Design Festival with their "Timber Wave" sculpture by Amanda Levete Architects in front of their main entrance.

The huge wood spiral is made of good ol' American Red Oak and just immense.

Though it looks nice during the day, the lit-up curved wood at night is absolutely beautiful.

The V&A has some special design exhibits for the festival, but I recommend their Power of Making exhibit, which highlights how traditional craft-work can be seen in everyday objects and technologies.

Don't forget to check out the temporary House of Annie Lennox exhibit while you are there!
