God is in the DetailsA group of influential designers including the likes of Tom Dixon and Stephen Webster were set a challenge on the theme of detail, exploring hidden design within the Victoria and Albert Museum's vast collection as part of The London Design Festival. For God is in the Details each designer has selected an object they admire, creating a trail of chosen objects with the detail highlighted through Swarovski lenses which magnify the curiosities within each piece's design.

 

About Victoria and Albert (V & A) Museum

The Victoria and Albert Museum (or V & A as everyone calls it) was originally founded in 1852 to inspire and educate British designers and manufacturers. Today it houses over 4 million items spanning centuries and hundreds of cultures. The stunning collection covers European, Indian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Islamic artefacts ranging from ceramics, glass, metalwork and sculpture to costume, armour, weaponry and furniture.
