After months of extensive planning, Design London is set to welcome the architecture and design community to London’s new favourite neighbourhood, North Greenwich, for its inaugural event. Taking place from 22-25 September, Design London, will be the largest official trade destination at this year’s London Design Festival marking a new phase for what was formerly known as 100% Design, the U.K.’s longest running trade show dedicated to design. The dynamic and propelling show will be housed in Magazine London, a brand new, state-of-the-art venue on the Greenwich Peninsula overlooking Canary Wharf and just a short walk from North Greenwich Station and the shiny new Design District.
An essential platform for those looking to network and source the latest and most innovative furniture, lighting and design pieces during the annual festival, the four-day event boasts a jam-packed programme of engaging content and a highly curated selection of sought-after design brands from around the globe. The expansive venue will house a multitude of international brands including Dutch furniture producers Artifort and Van Rossum as well as esteemed Italian manufacturers Ethimo; Penta, and Artemide. Lifestyle & Design Cluster will showcase a plethora of sophisticated Scandi brands including Fredericia Furniture whilst bespoke sculptural lighting company Cameron Design House will reveal new contemporary brand Empty State and create a spectacular installation with never-before-seen handmade chandelier, Kuulas.
Led by renowned industry influencers and thought leaders, Discussions at Design London will address the most pressing topics to encourage debate. British-Nigerian artist Yinka Ilori will open the talks programme on day one in his joyfully designed auditorium, ‘Transparency in shades of colour’. Other speakers include Henry Holland, Eley Kishimoto and Pearson Lloyd.
