Designed by London-based Studio Roso, the Victoria & Albert Museum’s Christmas tree is made from 3.3 miles of elastic cord and stands over four metres high
A total of 1500 individual strands have been combined in groups of 10 to create the outline of a traditional Christmas Tree, according to Studio Roso. “Within these cords a number of geometric shapes are created, referencing both traditional Christmas ornaments and the crystal- line structure of snowflakes and icicles, providing a decorative garland throughout the installation.”
The design was, apparently, “inspired by the intricate craft of bobbin lacing, a technique often used in traditional Christmas decorations”. Studio Roso had just three weeks to build and install the tree.
The tree was built in collaboration with James Shearer of Small Projects.
