UK Bus Designer Creates The Guides For His Own Retrospective
Thomas Heatherwick, famous for creating the UK Pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai Expo and redesigning London's iconic double-deckers, is honored with a retrospective.
The recently opened retrospective, Heatherwick Studio: Designing the Extraordinary, at London's V&A Museum celebrates the work of British designer Thomas Heatherwick by showcasing a sampling of 140 of his studio's projects from the last two decades.
Heatherwick created his Studio in 1994 ‘as a space in which to produce extraordinary projects.' Heatherwick and his team create 3-dimensional work across a variety of disciplines, ‘from architecture, furniture, product design and fashion, to engineering, sculpture, transport and urban planning.' The Studio's works range from ‘Spun,' a spinning chair, to redesigning the London bus, to designing the UK Pavilion at the Shanghai 2010 Expo.
