This year our Guide London 2014 (PDF download) will help you discover more possibilities with the minimum of effort.

This year our Guide London 2014 (PDF download) will help you discover more possibilities with the minimum of effort.

In September the subject of design will once more dominate public life in a number of major European cities – including the British capital, as the London Design Festival comes to town. The Thameside city is already home to some of the world’s leading designers and architects, which will naturally have a positive impact on the festival.

 

From 17 to 21 September leading protagonists in the field of design will be actively participating in the festival, benefitting not only the exhibitors but also attending professionals, visitors and consumers. Newcomers will feel equally at home in London, as will the craftsmanship-oriented specialists at Decorex International, which this year will take place in a new and impressive venue in Syon Park.

 

In all its facets – even well beyond the mainstream – the London Design Festival spreads right across the city, establishing local focal points (Tent London & Super Brands London) and individual centres (designjunction). Visitors with an instinct for exploring the design world will find the ideal opportunity for this in the twentieth 100% Design show. What began as a rather unpretentious exhibition in a tent in the Kings Road in 1995 has since developed into a widely respected centre for top British and international design.
