The London Design Festival - which I wrote about in my September column, above - is on right now. I'll be in London most of this week checking out various events. The official launch at the V&A last Friday was very inspiring - there are some fantastic installations here's a list including one in the Raphael Gallery by Barber Osgerby and BMW which has to be seen to be believed. It's a giant, reflective, kinetic sculpture which slowly rotates and casts rather beautiful shadows and completely changes the feel of the room as it turns. As the designers said: "it's an experience, not a series of objects; it's meant to distort, to feel like you're floating".
