Somerset House is to become home to an installation by furniture design duo Fredrikson Stallard. Called Portrait, it will be a centrepiece for the London Design Festival in September. The work has been commissioned by champagne brand Veuve Clicquot and takes the form of a single piece of wood, which has been recreated in steel and light to replicate the grain structure of wood. The steel sections are the dominant feature in daylight, while at night the spaces in between will glow in Veuve Clicquot’s signature yellow. Portrait will be next to Waterloo Bridge from 13-23 September.
