As part of the “Designing the Extraordinary” exhibition organized by Heatherwick Studio, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London was recently fitted with a marquee made from recycled traffic cones.
Apparently, the very purpose of this exhibition is taking various items which usually go unnoticed or are merely regarded from a utilitarian perspective, and turning them into works of art.
As artistic as these recycled traffic cones might look now, the fact remains that they are still rather useful to Londoners, as they can very easily take cover under them if they happen to be close by and the weather decides to act out.
In case you were wondering, this highly innovative canopy is held in place by means of oxidized steel frames, so one need not worry about accidents taking place.
Those wishing to experience first-hand the “Design the Extraordinary” exhibition can do so at the Victoria & Albert Museum until the 30th of September.
