Murray at 10 Downing Street, relaxing after helping the Prime Minister solve some terrible design crisis

Now it can be told: there was a moment or two of down time during that V&A installation thing, during which Murray was whisked to 10 Downing for ultra secret design consultation and wetwork for Her Majesty’s government. The Official Design Secrets Act forbids Bloss from telling you what it involved. Trust us, though, the empire is better for his intervention. And here he is, afterward, entertaining a few new acquaintances over a glass or two. You can never tell when his design expertise will be called upon. He is available to governments everywhere.

Don’t be thinking 3D printing is all in the future. It’s here now, fashionistas.

Here’s the complicated and exquisite Escapism Dress designed by super-up-and-coming fashion designer Iris Van Herpen, as it is in Murray’s installation at the V&A. (We made this shot a little out of focus so you wouldn’t be frightened.) But wait–look below! OMG, it’s the SAME DRESS. On the runway at Iris’s fashion show in January, being worn by an actual human. Right there in the lineup with all those old fashioned sewn together with thread things. So, yeah, 3D printing, crazy and out there as it is, is already here. Get used to it.

OMG–now he’s on video!

The Guardian reviews London Design Festival-it’s all about the prostitute shoes

Well, maybe not ALL about, there are those giant John Pawson Swarovski lenses at St Paul’s after all, but Murray’s 14 pairs of prostitute shoes surrounding the orgy Bed of Ware do feature rather prominently in Jonathan Glancey’s review in yesterday’s Guardian. Click on the bed for the full monty.

Q & A about the V & A

And now it’s the New York Times climbing on the V&A/London Design Festival/3D Printing bandwagon. See the Home section today for a Q&A with Murray about the installation. Or click the pic.

Now even the Independent is getting with the 3D printing program

Read all about Murray and the V&A (again) but this time it’s the Independent (a rather big deal London newspaper) which has suddenly discovered the wonderful world of 3D printing. And they are REALLY into it. Click on the pic to go. Or click here to go to the Full Story on the Mother Ship.

Sometimes it really pays off to give a reporter a nice danish

This morning, Artinfo.com has a great piece on Murray’s upcoming V&A installation for the London Design Festival. This is the 3-D printed hat and bust, designed by milliner to the upper crusty, Stephen Jones, which will go next to Lady Bellhaven in the V&A Sculpture Court.

Wild doings at the Moss Breakfast Theatre

For a press event at crack of dawn this morning, Moss turned itself into a mini theatre, complete with actual seats, and breakfast food items. The purpose was to present all the design-driven action one could look forward to at the upcoming London Design Festival (September 17 to 25). One of the epicenters of said action is the V&A, where Murray will be curating a series of interventions. All 3D printing. All Materialise, Belgium. All over the museum. Another huckleberry scone, please, Juan.
