London Design Festival

The tenth London Design Festival took place earlier this month, celebrating a decade of cutting edge design in the capital. Spanning ten days, the festival played host to a range of events from international exhibitions, installations, trade events, seminars and talks, product launches, private views and parties.

The V&A acted as the hub for the festival; with a stunning traffic cone installation by Heatherwick Studios at the entrance (see our previous blog entry for a full review of their exhibition). Thomas Heatherwick, along with many other leading designers, also spoke at the Global Design Forum to discuss the industry and inspire ideas and new directions for the coming year.

In our neighbourhood, the Shoreditch Design Triangle featured events in bars, restaurants, studios and shops – the Nordic O Food café certainly got our seal of approval, with beautifully designed print, interiors and menu, of course. Here’s to another 10 years of fabulous London design!
