The ‘Ceramic Galleries' at the Victoria & Albert Museum have been designed as a visible storage showcase as part of the reinstallation of the ceramic galleries phase II.

The visible study collection contains 26.000 objects that are displayed with the idea that they are - on demand - available to curators, specialists and the general public. Surface area: 950 m2

    Did the judges actually visit these galleries?!
    The big idea was quite clever but actually quite poor in reality.

    • Paul

      Really don't understand what you are talking about. I was there twice. I think this installation is stunning, fresh, innovative, technically perfect and poetic. Well done! It is an inspiration to all professionals involved in the design industry.

    It’s a strong design.Nicely placed in the gallery. Light A strong concept,light and strong in detail. It’s intriguing by the quantity of ceramics and provoked into making choices.
