Thomas Heatherwick: Making is the first comprehensive monograph on one of the world’s most innovative designers. Only two decades into his career, Briton Thomas Heatherwick has been heralded as one of the most original creative talents in years. His retrospective solo exhibit at the Victoria and Albert Museum runs from May 31 – September 30 this year. The winner of countless design awards, and the youngest practitioner to be appointed a Royal Designer for Industry, Heatherwick has a unique eye for architecture and design, blending organic, natural forms and materials with modern geometry and a sense of whimsy.

His project range from the small – a shop window, sculptural chairs forged from world’s largest aluminum extruder, a design for a Longchamp handbag – to the larger than life in both size and concept – a bridge that rolls open and closed; the awards winning UK pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai Expo, an exuberant see bank, ‘hairly’ with fiber-optic lights; or the Cauldron which will hold the Olympic Flame in 2012.

This volume presents a comprehensive overview covering the studio’s entire history. Over 140 projects are represented, each fully illustrated with images selected from Heatherwick’s personal and studio archives, many published for the first time. Each of the projects is accompanied by commentary writeen by Heatherwick himself. These insights offer an unprecedented, in-depth and behind-the-scenes perspective, and reveal the creative, design, and manufacturing processes behind Thomas Heaterwick’s genius.
