Mind-bending is one thing. Space-bending is quite another. A new immersive, kinetic installation achieves both at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Multi-disciplinary designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby devised a pair of revolving, reflective sculptures suspended in the center of the Raphael Gallery. “Precision & Poetry in Motion” plays with perception and movement: the floor backflips into the ceiling, and walls dance with distortion – a warping of form mirrored in the organza layers of this dress designed by Scotsman Christopher Kane (still kin).

This V&A display will outlive its opening for the London Design Festival, a nine-day celebration of contemporary design that closes Sunday, by running through October. Plenty of time to hop the pond.
