Rapid Response Collecting is a new strand to the V&A’s collecting activity. Objects are collected in response to major moments in history that touch the world of design and manufacturing. The display, which will constantly change, shows how design reflects and defines how we live together today.

Ranging from Christian Louboutin shoes in five shades of "nude"; a cuddly toy wolf used as an object of political dissent; to the world’s first 3D-printed gun, each new acquisition raises a different question about globalisation, popular culture, political and social change, demographics, technology, regulation or the law.

The Rapid Response Collecting display is an ongoing display.

For 2016, the Festival will continue its unique collaboration with the world’s leading Museum of art and design. As the central hub location for the London Design Festival for the seventh year, the V&A will again house a broad range of commissioned activity which will be spread throughout the Museum and include installations, events, talks and workshops.
