- Year / 2014
‘Double Space for BMW - Precision and Poetry in Motion’ is the latest exhibition by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, for the 2014 London Design Festival. Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby are fascinated by aeronautical, automotive and maritime engineering, and the interplay between movement, performance and scale. Double Space at the Victoria and Albert Museum encapsulates these passions, with the largest structure that they have ever created. Doubles Space is designed to challenge and delight the visitor, creating a completely new way to experience the classic architecture and beautiful cartoons in the Raphael Gallery. Two enormous reflective silver elements are suspended in the ceiling space, and rotate in a series of choreographed movements. The project has been made possible with the enormous skill of a team of experts, and is commissioned by BMW and London design Festival. Double Space will be in the Raphael Gallery for public view 12 September 2014 – 20 October 2014. Admittance is free.
