Zotem by Kim Thomé, in partnership with Swarovski and London Design Festival
V&A Entrance Hall, London
15 September – 31 October 2015
This bold, colourful monolith, comprising over 600 bespoke Swarovski crystals, looms 18 metres high in the main entrance hall of the V&A. millimetre worked closely with Norwegian artist Kim Thomé to design, develop and manufacture the artwork, from the initial concept through to installation.
Zotem’s black metallic walls are studded with four types of crystals, arranged in repeating geometric designs. A revolving canvas of ascending light and colour rolls continuously behind them, projecting refracted colours and patterns, drawing the viewer’s eye upwards to the ornate cupola and first floor galleries.
