It's going to be quite a spectacle too; "drawing in the country’s greatest thinkers, practitioners, retailers and educators to deliver an unmissable celebration of design", as LDF describes.
Blurb aside, it’s definitely not just about the designers; the festival brings all walks of life together, from art fans to buyers, tourists to children. Essentially it’s one big wonderful community of folks whom love to explore.
Naturally, we ourselves are huge fans of design; championing home-grown talent including artists such as Caslon & Co, Fanny Shorter, and Richard Brendon. Over the coming months we've plenty of exciting new pieces arriving from a variety of British designers, some of which you can see a sneak peek of below.
In the meantime, we’re jotting down the must-sees of The London Design Festival. On our agenda so far? The "Endless Stair" at the Tate Modern, re-visiting the Victoria & Albert Museum (a key venue for the festival), and taking in the "If Shoes Could Talk" exhibition - just for fun. What are your plans?
