Design Festival coming to London

Posted on September 13, 2012 by Megan

The London Design Festival (LDF) kicks off next week and we are gearing up for a jam packed week full of inspirational interior design events, seminars and parties!

World Interiors News will cover the event from our base at Design Junction, where we will host a booth showcasing products from the shortlisted designers of the WAN Interiors Furniture and Accessories Award 2012. We are thrilled to have products including Karim Rashid’s Sancal Float Sofa, Eric Parry Architect’s Vigilia Bench, Vitamin’s Knot Lamp and the winner Naomi Paul’s OMI pendants range, including her XL GLÜCK pendant which is being shown for the first time.

During the LDF we will also traverse the capital to bring you a roundup of the best exhibitions and products that the week has to offer, out in our next edition of INSIDE.

West London’s 100% Design show takes place at Earl’s Court from 19 – 22 September, highlights of which include the International Pavilions, which will feature over 200 designers from around the world.

The capital’s East End will be abuzz with open studios, pop-up exhibitions and shows all radiating out from the central hub of Brick Lane where, from 20 – 23 September, Tent London takes over The Old Truman Brewery. Tent will promote many young British designers, such as recent graduate Hugh Leader-Williams and his award winning Spun furniture range, and the latest contemporary interior products in ceramics, textiles, materials, lighting, furniture and accessories.

Central London will host Design Junction from 19 – 23 September at the former Royal Mail sorting office on New Oxford Street. The event will showcase over 100 lighting and furniture designers including Artek, Benchmark, Pinch and Thonet.

With so much to see and do this year at LDF it’s worth pencilling in the whole weekend to explore the festival, and make sure that you come along and meet us at booth F60 at the Design Junction, The Sorting Office, 21-31 New Oxford Street, London, WC1A 1BA.

The London Design Festival runs from 14 – 23 September at various venues across the city. See www.londondesignfestival.com for full listings and events.

We look forward to seeing you there!
