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.
We are excited to present a social evening with this year’s Designers in Residence and Special Guests on Tuesday 14 October. Come along to meet the designers and find out more about their interests and working methods through informal presentations, followed by drinks and discussions. Tickets cost £14 (£10.50 students) and includes entry to the show. Find out more here.
