Media Partnership / Designers in Residence 2014

Meet Torsten Sherwood in our latest Design Museum video

One of the best things about this year’s Designers in Residence is that it takes big ideas and makes them accessible to the gallery-going public. Nowhere is this more obvious than in Torsten Sherwood’s work, which looks at disrupting traditional patterns of play with a new kind of interlocking building block that reimagines the basic functions of LEGO. Not only can you see how Tortsen’s ideas developed at the show, you can also have a go yourself which adds a fantastically fun element to proceedings.

For the next in our series of video interviews filmed in the run-up to the exhibition opening, we went into Torsten’s north London studio to meet him, see his space and see how it was all coming together.
