Transform Picture Frames Into Architecture




    London Design Festival, a nine-day salute to British interiors and products, may end today, but we hope one LDF highlight will last for the foreseeable future. It's industrial designer Stuart Haygarth’s installation “Framed” at the Victoria & Albert Museum. “My work is about giving banal and overlooked objects a new significance,” writes Haygarth on his website. His latest unnoticed item to rescue? Remnants of painted-wood picture frames that Haygarth upcycled into a Technicolor addition to a marble staircase. The vivid, striped path leads to the art institution’s architecture exhibitions. We love how Haygarth transformed an ordinary material into a gorgeous, cheery display and how it acts as a modern, eye-popping foil to the V&A’s elegant, traditional space. [Via Dezeen.]
