Celebrating and promoting London as the design capital of the world, the London Design Festival (LDF) is now in its 15th year.
The London Design Festival is an essential platform for the capital’s major trade shows taking place across London, featuring work from a local and international network of both new and established exhibitors. These shows comprise 100% Design, Decorex International, designjunction, Focus/16 and The London Design Fair (including Tent London & Super Brands). This year, a brand new show makes its debut at Kensington Olympia’s Pillar and Upper Pillar Halls. Exciting and innovative design will be debuted at these ‘Design Destinations’, which are key events for designers and manufacturers alike aiming to build their presence and reach new audiences as well as for consumers seeking design and interiors ideas.
London Design Festival is proud to continue its long-standing relationship with the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A), the world’s leading museum of art, design and performance.
Now entering the ninth year with the V&A as the o cial Festival hub, this unique collaboration will see iconic spaces within the Museum transformed by an extraordinary collection of specially-commissioned installations and displays by international contemporary designers.
Head of London Design Festival at the V&A, Victoria Broackes, said: “The V&A and London Design Festival have a history of working together to showcase a range of extraordinary installations by some of the world’s most exciting designers. As an institution that was founded on principles of inspiration and education, it is a delight to ll the Museum with design interventions that respond to the V&A’s world-renowned collections and historic spaces in new and innovative ways, as well as a vast programme of talks, tours, workshops and demonstrations, covering all aspects of the design industry.”
