Wunderboxes is a temporary installation designed for the V&A Friday late programme “Archive Live” in the grand entrance hall of the V&A museum in London. PostlerFerguson was commissioned to visualize parts of their research and the design team responded with an installation of differently formatted cardboard boxes each one housing a bright orange light box displaying a variety of three dimensional models to create an abstract but strangely familiar collection of “things”. Spectators were encouraged to come closer and examine the partly hidden and camouflaged objects being drawn in by the warm and hypnotising orange glow of the boxes. From a tiger attack helicopter to Han Solo in Carbonite – from a Lobster to the iconic “Nike Swoosh” the objects represent the designers divers interests and fields of research from science to popular culture.
