London Design Festival at the Victoria and Albert MuseumLondon's venerable Victoria and Albert Museum is the central hub of The London Design Festival for the tenth time in 2018, when the festival celebrates its 16th year. This year, to tie in with the current V&A displays - Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt and The Future Starts Here - the programme explores new technologies, sound, digital design and gaming. MultiPly puts an interactive, maze-like installation in The Sackler Courtyard which you can explore, going up and down tulipwood staircases and across bridges. Inside the museum, in Room 131A, you'll be 'dazzled' by a display which explores the experimental camouflage painted onto ships during the First World War. In the tapestries room, Henrik Vibskov's Onion Farm creates a colourful red textile tunnel structure from which 'onions' seem to grow. Music and design meet in the Norfolk House Music Room where Memory & Light sets up a luxurious viewing and listening bench creating a unique way to hear composer Arvo Part's words and music.
