If you were already giving up on attending any design event this year despite your passion for it, you’re in luck, you don’t have to! Instead, you can make the most of the digital versions of your favorite design festivals. Today, we’ll show you how London Design Festival is making the most of the digital world to present you a design festival you won’t want to miss out on!
London Design Festival was one of the biggest design events every year, alongside Maison et Objet or iSaloni, but times have changed and we’re looking for better solutions to move everything digitally, while times are still tough. This design festival has done it perfectly so far! Starting 12th of September until the 20th, this 18th edition will be unlike any other. This year, we’re celebrating and promoting London as design capital of the world virtually, with digital talks, workshops and keynotes you will love!
When the Festival first launched back in 2003, co-founders Sir John Sorrell CBE and Ben Evans CBE wanted to celebrate design in London, showing design aficionados that the city was one of the big centers of design. The vision hasn’t changed over the years, and this year, despite the event going digital, that vision seems more important, to put a spotlight on London and its design brilliance.
Every day you’ll find a schedule online with every event, workshop or talk that you must attend in this incredible design festival. London Design Festival 2020 presents you with virtual tours, forums to discuss design, design awards to congratulate the best minds and talent in the London design scene, and others.
Check out the schedule for the 14th of September below!
Stay connected with the London design scene in this incredible design festival with new and exciting schedules every day.
2020 Landmark Projects
London-based architecture practice Studio Weave, supported by Lendlease and LCR, will create The Hothouse, a large-scale installation located at International Quarter London (IQL). And because you can’t have a design festival without some workshops, pop-up stores and landmarks around the city, make sure to pass by and check out this creation, with all the safety measures you can.
This project during London Design Festival allows 9 designers to come together to create a table and seating, which will suit their new ways of working from and living at home. They will also record their creative journeys to allow us to witness how they approach the brief and develop their thoughts, sketches and ideas during these challenging times. These nine exciting solutions will all be displayed together virtually, and then exhibited at the Design Museum in Autumn, celebrating the act of coming back together.
