During London Design Festival, EDC London will host a talk by design commentator Stephen Bayley around the themes of his new book Ugly – the Aesthetics of Everything. The well-known author, critic and founding head of the Design Museum will tackle the topic of what is ugly and why, and – Bayley being Bayley – it is sure to feature its fair share of humour and controversy. The talk takes place on 19 September, 12.30-2.30pm and will be popular, so RSVP soon to Olivia Martin at [email protected]
Furniture brand EDC will also be hosting the Design Book Shwop from 17-22 September, where visitors are invited to bring their old design books to swap for alternative reads, and to browse new titles from publishers such as Goodman Fiell and daab. Visit edclondon.com for more details.
