ALCANTARA AND ROSS LOVEGROVE PRESENT "TRANSMISSION"
Alcantara and Ross Lovegrove unveiled “Transmission“, their latest collaboration, which is on display in the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Tapestries for London Design Festival from 16 September to 8 October 2017. The installation was created by the British designer to mark the fifteenth edition of the annual design event, which brings together the biggest names from the industry to London, for a week-long celebration of design and innovation.
British designer Ross Lovegrove, inspired by the Devonshire Hunting Tapestries at the V&A, created “Transmission”, a spectacular 21-metre-long fluid and free-standing three-dimensional tapestry, which is made entirely from Alcantara, the renowned Italian material. Created using Alcantara, a tactile and pliable material, the soft undulating folds of the installation reflect and highlight both colours and forms of the medieval tapestries.
