Attentive to urban details that are often overlooked by Londoners and tourists, we proposed two authentic London souvenirs for the LDF pop-up shop at the Vicotoria and Albert Museum. A matchbox and a pencil inspired by a Belisha beacon. The yellow globe lamp atop a tall black and white stripy pole, named after Minister of Transport Leslie Hore Belisha who introduced the beacons in 1934 to mark pedestrian crossings.
A bold and quirky urban symbol that brings humour to the streets of London.
Matchbox 40mm x 195mm
Pencil 190mm, Eraser 25mm
Available from the V&A Shop.
