Here are the amazing installations and exhibitions of London Design Festival 2016. The majority of events take place from September 17-25 2016 and it’s the perfect chance to explore craft and design at its very best.
London-based architect Alison Brooks‘ Smile installation aims to showcase the structural potential of cross-laminated timber (CLT), and will make use of American tulipwood to create a curved tunnel that rises off the ground. The timber tube will only touch the floor at one point, and is open at either end. It will feature a series of perforations across its sides that allow natural light in during the day, and create a pattern of light spots when the structure is lit at night.
