London’s burning

The Olympic Torch blazed past our Holland Park showroom today, carried by Lakshmi Mittal, on the penultimate day of its epic 70 day tour of Great Britain.

We are ardent fans of the Torch as it was designed by our friends Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby. It is made from aluminium alloy and has 8,000 laser cut circular perforations, one to represent each torchbearer.

It seems we’re not alone in our admiration; the Torch received one of the creative industry’s highest accolades, winning the Design Museum’s Design of the Year award for 2012.
