Designjunction’s Superb Installations Will Empower London’s South BankTuesday 11 September 2018
Designjunction’s Superb Installations Will Empower London’s South Bank ⇒ In 2018, designjunction has found a new location in the cultural design hub of the South Bank. The event will take place from 20-23 September and will encompass a combination of global furniture, lighting, accessory, material and technology brands, who have the opportunity to meet, do business and be inspired by one another. However, today, CovetED will talk about a series of installations and interactive features that are bound to empower London’s South Bank, so take a look.
This year, designjunction will showcase a remarkable line-up and programme, comprised of 200 cutting-edge brands and hundreds of new product launches as well as boutique pop-shops and thought-provoking talks, not to mention, exceptionally curated installations that bring design and innovation to a whole new level. Now, check out the five thrilling installations that you should definitely explore during the occasion of one of London Design Festival’s primary trade fairs.
Stephanie Chaltiel created the Mud Shell Project which offers an alternative housing system for emergency contexts. The Dome-shaped structure was made of a light fabric, then programmed drones will come into action and will be used to spray natural materials over the shelter, making it a more “sturdy and durable” living environment.
Located on a Doon Street site, “The Architect’s Toolkit” was a project imagined by the award-winning architecture practice, Squire & Partners. The main purpose of this project was to create a “dreamscape” co-working space where a broad range of individuals can be introduced to architecture and design.
Lisa White collaborated with designer François Dumas to conceived a distinctive installation entitled the “Gateway to Inclusion”. It will be placed on a jetty overlooking the Thames river. Its structure was made of steel and ribbon and pays homage to the traditional industries of the city of Saint-Étienne in France.
The renowned Swiss brand, Vitra will also have a part in designjunction by presenting an exceptional exhibition called “The Original. About the power of good design”. It will feature some of the brand’s most iconic classic and contemporary products. It will also display the work of the winners of the Blueprint’s Photography Awards.
A massive 8 metres high sculpture by Steuart Padwick will be placed on the Southbank at Queen’s Stone Jetty. This ground-breaking installation is dubbed as Head above Water.
