London Design Festival 2019
From 14 to 22 September Londoners are set to host the London Design Festival 2019, one of the most prestigious design festivals worldwide – demonstrating once again just why England’s capital is renowned as an international mecca for design. One of the central attractions of the London Design Festival are its »Landmark Projects«, which feature installations by renowned international designers in some of London’s most iconic locations. This year British designer Sam Jacob will showcase his »Sea Things« installation in the Victoria & Albert Museum, and Paul Cocksedge will bring an exciting new experience to Finsbury Avenue Square with »Please Be Seated«. The festival will also host a series of experimental exhibitions and installations dedicated to issues such as climate change, innovation, growth and sustainability. At the festival’s annual conference, the Global Design Forum, international design guests such as Kengo Kuma, Vivienne Westwood and Fabio Novembre will present new ideas for the future of design. The festival will also offer a number of workshops focusing on materials, issues affecting production, graphic design and biodesign, as well as new business models.
