Irish Design 2015 Presents Ireland’s First Landmark Project at the London Design Festival. Irish design is represented for the first time at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London during The London Design Festival in an ambitious Landmark Project The Ogham Wall. Created by Grafton Architects, winners of numerous international awards including the 2008 World Building of the Year Award, working in conjunction with Graphic Relief, the installation was inspired by the Irish Ogham alphabet, dating from approximately the 4th century AD. The imposing forms of The Ogham Wall will fill the V&A’s Tapestry Gallery as one of a series of international events for Irish Design 2015.
