A unique collaboration betwwen the world’s leading museum of art and design and London’s foremost contemporary design festival”, says Martin Roth, director of the V&A.

Prism and Veuve Clicquot present an alternative view of London, exposing unseen data flows in the capital through a sculptural, immersive interface suspended in the V&A’s uppermost cupola.
