The V&A now wows from an extra angle. If you're not gawping at the fabric of the building itself, being edified and entranced by its extensive and superb collection or gazing at the incredibly pretty dining rooms out back you - well the ladies - can now be transported by the smallest room. Yes, the ladies lavs. Only, 'lavs' no longer does them justice as they've been transformed by Glowacka Rennie into an elegantly serene temple to the toilet and graced with a mindboggling installation of circles and spirals. These stylish "Women's Amenities" embody the V&A's principles of promoting promote fine and decorative arts, craftsmanship and materiality, and reflect the grandeur of the entrance they sit by. We can't wait to wee there, possibly wearing a hat, en route to the magnificent Baroque exhibition.
