Thomas Heatherwick @ Haunch of Venison

Thomas Heatherwick's new exhibition Extrusions, includes six extruded, mirror-polished, aluminium benches made without fittings or fixtures. Heatherwick commissioned a die through which single 'plugs' of aluminium were 'squeezed', resulting in a series of graceful pieces with dramatic curves. The shape and high metallic shine, achieved by hundreds of hours of polishing, is reminiscent of the Cadillac icon.
