Orgatec 2012 as seen by Architonic

The latest edition of Orgatec – the biennial design fair for all things office, which took place from 23 to 27 October – had a rather positive atmosphere about it. The Cologne-based exhibition proved once more its credentials as the leading international showcase for the contract sector through a highly convincing selection of high-end exhibitors and an engaging professional events programme.

Biennale Interieur 2012, Kortrijk as seen by Architonic

Earlier last month (20 – 28 October) Interieur 2012 design biennial returned to Kortrijk, Belgium for its 23rd edition. With no less than 300 exhibitions from some of industry’s leading manufacturers as well as young, up-and-coming designers presenting contemporary design for the home as well as multiple interior innovations, there was plenty to see and be inspired by.


And should you have missed this fascinating event, fear not. Architonic team was there and here’s what they saw:

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…

Super Brands London at the London Design Festival 2012, as captured by Architonic

Our special LDF 2012 partner, Super Brands London, put the super into, well, Super Brands, at their off-Brick Lane venue last week. In addition to hosting the inaugural exhibition of Architonic’s new partner company Materials Council (with attendant gin-soaked launch party, of course), Super Brands London was also home to a high-calibre selection of international design labels. Weren’t there? Fear not. Here’s the whole shebang in pictures…

Before Vignelli there was Matter: Herbert Matter’s old logotype for Knoll in the window of their West End showroom during the London Design Festival 2012

While the London Design Festival’s big-top design destinations, such as Super Brands London, Tent, designjunction and 100% Design pulled large crowds, a number of design brands used their city showrooms as spaces for serving up fascinating slices of design-historical culture. Here’s some of what was on the menu. (by Simon Keane-Cowell …yes, he’s back!)
