The Warren Street maze
The Warren Street maze
In the late 1960s, London Transport appointed a collective of designers, artists and architects who designed all aspects of the Victoria Line. The distinctive designs in each platform seat recess on all of its 16 stations provided much needed colour and decoration and gave each stop its own visual identity. The results were a mixture of direct inspiration from the station name and references to historical details of the local area.

The design for Warren Street is by Alan Fletcher LinkExternal link . It's a maze, not a labyrinth, as the latter has only a single way in and out, with no choices of path or dead ends - see TQ2982 : Warren Street tube station - Labyrinth 174.
