Reflection Room is an immersive, coloured light experience that will be the first London Design Festival installation to be housed in the Prince Consort Gallery. The vaulted space is lit at each end to highlight and define the dramatic 35m length of the gallery, its ceiling structure and visitors to the installation. It is illuminated with Talbot’s signature of complementary blue and orange lighting, and large black reflective Barrisol panels are used to expand the width of the space, offering a fragmented view of shifting colours, faceted reflections and light.

Villa Walala by Camille Walala
Textile designer Camille Walala has created a huge inflatable sculpture, titled Villa Walala, that dominates Exchange Square in Broadgate, a dynamic hub just behind Liverpool Street Station that is owned by British Land. “I want to introduce a sense of the unexpected,” she says of the Landmark Project for London Design Festival. “I think that, to turn a corner into Broadgate, and find a huge, bouncy, pink and patterned house will be hugely entertaining.
Transmission by Ross Lovegrove (Victoria and Albert Museum)
Transmission is a 21.3 meters long fluid sculpture of folded material. Presented by Alcantara, Ross Lovegrove’s installation is an intuitive and evocative response towards the immersive physical atmosphere of the V&A’s tapestry room. Ross Lovegrove’s Transmission is a soft, undulating sculpture that snakes down the centre of V&A’s Tapestries Gallery. Its folds are inspired by the red gown, lined with miniver, worn by a lady in one of the hunting scenes on display in the darkened room. As the 21m-long, free-standing piece of the material divides the space, its serpentine form frames new and surprising views of the 15th-century tapestries. More info
