ZIETA PROZESSDESIGN AT THE LONDON DESIGN FESTIVAL

 

Our installation for the London Design Festival at the V&A Museum is ready!

We have been commissioned by the London Design Festival to design an installation for the V&A Museum. With the great help of Polish Cultural Institute, we have started the process in June, we went through all of the stages of prototyping and we have just finished! It was built in a unique FiDU technology and made even more unique – it is the world’s first rolled steel profile!

The installation, called Blow and Roll is made of large-scale steel elemens of different lengths up to 20m and of different heights. The problem and the challenge was to bring it to the garden in one piece, like all the other pieces of the Museum’s exhibition. To achieve it, pieces were transported to London and brought to the garden flat and rolled, and then they were inflated with air to the final shape.

1. THE INSTALLATION WAS DELIVERED TO LONDON
IN WOODEN BOXES
