Pentagram X 14-18 Now: Dazzle
Enter Room 131A at the V&A and you’ll find yourself surrounded by a dazzling display of visual delights. This specially commissioned project created by Pentagram is inspired by the First World War concept of Dazzle, which saw the surface of ships covered in experimental camouflage. Influenced by Cubism, Vorticism and animal camouflage, the wild shapes and angles painted onto the ships were designed to confuse the enemy.
