Set In Stone

London

The Design Museum

224-238 Kensington High Street
London W8 6AG – UK

 

Part of the 2017 London Design Festival programme, Set in Stone presented 20 of the original pieces created for the different projects of the First Stone programme – Resistance, Still Motion and Common Sense – in an installation made especially for The Design Museum.

Designed by a group of extraordinary architects and designers, the pieces explore the meaning of stone in public and private spaces by making use of the versatility of the material in terms of its colour and texture. By transporting an element of monumentality into everyday life, they reflect the solidity and permanence of an elemental material.
