The legacy

After the Legacy project, Wooden Hinge will live in the Whitechapel Gallery’s bookshop – and be brought out for awards and events.

"We felt connected to the idea of something that would last for a long time. We designed this piece in quite a utilitarian way, there is nothing trendy about it. It is honest and clear, and we hope it will be aesthetically relevant far into the future." - Yael Mer, Raw Edges

This object will be really important for the Whitechapel Gallery. I also think this display stand would benefit schools, colleges and public libraries. I would love to see this bookstand distributed to libraries to encourage kids to explore the book as a form" - Iwona BLazwick, Whitechapel Gallery
