Heatherwick Cones

There’s a small but interesting exhibition of Thomas Heatherwick’s works on at the V&A currently, and a new installation of his welcomes you on arrival. Its a simple but rather effective web of 208 hanging traffic cones curving towards the entrance doors of the museum. (I wanted to do the same exact thing with umbrellas at the school in Tokyo but sadly we couldn’t engineer the tension required.)

This looked great in the sunshine yesterday although I’m also quite curious to see the cones turn to funnels in the rain..! : )

    Haha, didn’t notice they were travel cones at first! Ours are either yellow or orange 🙂
    But it looks nice!
