Wish List: V&A

The Wish List
Dir: Petr Krejci / American Hardwood Export Council

Sir Terence Conran instigated the project when he wrote to his friends and asked, “What have you always wanted, but never been able to find?” His friends are, of course, some of the most illustrious names in architecture and design. Paul Smith, Norman Foster, Amanda Levete, John Pawson, Alison Brooks, Zaha Hadid, Alex de Rijke, Richard and Ab Rogers, and Allen Jones have all indicated what product they long for. A project initiated by the American Hardwood Export Council and Benchmark Furniture, The Wish List – What I have always wanted is… brings together a stellar list of architects and designers to create a compelling installation, The Wish List, which was exhibited at the Victoria & Albert Museum during the 2014 London Design Festival (13-21 September).

Featured here are the main exhibition project film, and one of a selection of films each focussing on the individual products, in this example Paul Smith's Shed.
