This stunning installation at the London Design Festival uses handcrafted glass lightbulbs and crystalline insects to create a moving musical structure.

The London Design Festival exhibit is the creation of Viennese design duo mischer'traxler in collaboration with champagne label Perrier-Jouet. It is displayed in a limited run at the Norfolk House Music Room at the Victoria & Albert museum. The work features glass replicas of 25 real species of insect. Each one is delicately placed inside a handblown lightbulb and suspended from the ceiling of the exhibition space. The resulting effect is an alternative experience of light and sound.

The London Design Festival is an annual celebration of the city's creators, retailers educators and design practitioners.
