Reflecting great works of art as the Double Space for BMW does is something that can be appreciated by many people. More is more, after all. Yet what the mirrored kinetic sculptures that make up the installation do for the classic works of art is something that brings them into the 21st century. Distorted and warped, the experience is trippy, to say the least.

Designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, the Double Space for BMW installation is located in Victoria and Albert Museum’s Raphael Gallery. Two giant mirrored half-cylinders are suspended in the center of the gallery, and turn in opposite directions to give the space a sense of perpetual movement. Essentially turning the hallowed grounds into a sort of fun house, the Double Space for BMW is a must-see.
