Either if you’re searching for inspiration, sourcing items for a project or just looking to connect with the best in the design industry, Designjunction will definitely put you within the heart of the creative community. In this part of the London Design Festival, you will be able to see the breakthrough brands which will shape design in the near future.
The main purpose of Designjunction is to bring together forward-thinking furniture, lighting and accessory brands at King’s Cross Design District. More than 200 international brands will be there, there will be hundreds of product launches, as well as over 70 pop-up shops and immersive installations, in addition to a schedule of thought-provoking talks and debates.
Among some of the top exhibitors of Designjunction we can point to several international names such as Di Class, Dorothy, Emma Alington, Ethimo, Haskin, Hello Grimes, Jennifer Newman, Vitra among many other luxury references. You will also be met with an interesting programme of talks, most of them focused on the future of design, while other take on more abstract and unique themes such as “Dyslexia and Design”, “Queer Culture and the City” or the “Ecologu and Evolution of Architecture in Cities Today”.
One of the big novelties this year has to do with the fact that King’s Cross, a part of London’s creative quarter, became a London Design Festival Design District for the very first time. Within this area, many of the biggest names in the industry will be inviting many onlookers for unique experiences, most notably Tom Dixon, who will be exploring the six senses in a unique showcase set to happen at their headquarters at the Coal Office.
If you attend this event you will also be able to take a look at “Best of British”, which will allow you to explore amazing British craftsmanship, specifically furniture, ceramics, prints and jewellery. Many British companies such as TedWood, Brook Studio and designer Juliana Loveday will be presenting amazing sets of new collections all of which come from incredible creativity and varied crafts. We also advise you to visit The Greenhouse, an immersive shop concept which will be celebrating sustainable living though the exposition of incredible pieces made from sustainable materials such as cork, recycled glassware, all of which designed by LAS International in cooperation with the Eden Project.
