Designjunction 2012, as seen by Architonic
Following its last year’s debut, earlier last month designjunction returned for its second edition which this time was held at central London’s 1960s Royal Mail sorting office. Featuring an array of latest products, design classics, site-specific installations and pop-up shops, it was a not-to-be-missed spot during the 2012 edition of The London Design Festival.
However, if for some reason you didn’t make it there, worry not. We did so on your behalf and here’s what we saw…

this year's edition of designjunction, as seen by Architonic's editors
A clear highlight of last week’s London Design Festival 2011 was designjunction, the group show that made a confident debut in Milan this April, but which surpassed itself in the British capital. Having started out as a Brits-only exhibition, but now international in terms of its line-up, designjunction took up residence in the white-tiled basement of Bloomsbury’s Victoria House, an ideal space for the strong work on show to dialogue with.
