The London Design Festival at the V&A will start this Saturday (till the 25.9.) One of their commissions though can be seen at St Paul's Cathedral to celebrate its 300th anniversary. It is an optical installation at the bottom of the Geometric Staircase, a christal lens on a stainless steel top, reflecting Christopher Wren's amazing staircase, the visual effect will be heightened by a mirror in the ceiling - designed by minimalist architect and designer John Pawson.

The Geometric Staircase

P.S And for Harry Potter fans: in the film "The Prisoners of Azkaban" this staircase lead to Professor Trelawny's classroom.
