‘Double Space’ offers a new perspective on the V&A

Take a closer look at BarberOsgerby’s unexpected and immersive installation at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London

During the London Design Festival 2014, visitors to the Victoria and Albert Museum were treated to an unexpected and immersive installation in the Museum’s awe-inspiring Raphael Gallery.
