London Design Festival 2010: designer Paul Cocksedge installed sheets of Corian as though fluttering around a hallway at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London for one day during the London Design Festival last week.
Called A Gust of Wind, the piece featured 300 curled pieces of Corian engraved with the words "Ideas Tray" and a series number.
At the end of the day they were given away to partners of the project and members of the public for use as paper trays.
Photographs are by Mark Cocksedge.

A GUST OF WIND - An installation by Paul Cocksedge Studio for the London Design Festival.
24th September 2010 18:30-22h:00 London Design Festival V&A, Friday Late Event
Three hundred curvaceous pieces of Corian® will be exhibited for one day only as part of the V&A’s Friday Late Programme. The ‘pages’, which will be given away during the event, represent a stack of paper that has been blown into the air by a gust of wind. Each of these limited edition pieces is engraved and then handmade by Paul Cocksedge. They will function as paper trays, becoming a place for wandering paper to gather.
This installation is made possible through collaboration with the London Design Festival, V&A and DuPontTM Corian®.
