This exhibition toured to six venues across East Asia as part of the New British Inventors Campaign developed by the GREAT Britain Campaign and the British Council. The London based Heatherwick Studio epitomises the spirit of invention of a new wave of British designers. Featuring drawings, models, films and test pieces generated by speculative and built projects from the past 20 years, the exhibition is a window into the studio who have become renowned for projects such as the UK Pavilion at Shanghai Expo 2010. It offers unique insights into the ideas and experiments that go into realising projects that span architecture and engineering, as well as furniture, sculpture and product design.
The exhibition captures the studio’s spirit of discovery, demonstrating their imaginative and entrepreneurial approach to design.
