Excited to know what happened during the London Design Festival 2019?
Designer Paul Cocksedge has turned reclaimed scaffolding planks into a large-scale public art installation.
For 2019’s London Design Festival edition, French designer Camille Walala has installed benches, planters, and flags adorned with her signature colourful patterns along South Molton Street to turn the road into the “Walala Lounge.”Martino Gamper, Bethan Laura Wood, Soft Baroque, and Michael Marriott are among the designers that have created masks for a contemporary art exhibition at this year’s London Design Festival, and they are definitely among our favourites.
For the installation in the John Madejski Garden at the V&A, Japanese architect Kengo Kuma combines bamboo and carbon fibre to demonstrate how the combination can become a foundation for earthquake-proof architecture art. Bamboo Ring serves as a prototype for a new material that can be used to build stronger buildings and homes.
One of our absolute favourite designers, Roksanda Illincic, is debuting a three-story penthouse that she did the interior design for as part of the London Design Festival this year. One of our favourite interior design projects!
Sam Jacob has taken a fabric print based on a pattern of fish and sea creatures, created by Charles and Ray Eames, and updated it. He’s added discarded objects, like plastic bottles, to provoke thought and discussion about ocean pollution and plastic waste.
