The Kinetic Light at LDF

Set in the rather grand surrounds of the Norfolk House music room, deep in the bowels of The V&A, British-based product designer Michael Anastassiades has installed one of our favourite Design Festival creations thus far.

Featuring a sphere of light attached to a brushed brass pole, Anastassiades has created an oversized pendulum, which swings metronomically (in a nod to its musical surrounds) within a cubic brass skeleton.

"Kinetic Light" by Michael Anastassiades is now on display at The V&A, South Kensington, Cromwell Road, London SW7 2RL until 26 September. www.vam.ac.uk
