Timber Wave

For the 2011 London Design Festival, the American Hardwood Export Council asked Amanda Levete Architects to design a temporary installation at the entrance to the Victoria and Albert Museum. The idea was to use American red oak to create a giant piece of furniture that would extend the museum into the public realm. The annual London Design Festival creates a platform for designers to explore materials in new ways.
