London Design Festival 2019 has started last Saturday, on the 14th of September and today we are sharing with you what you need to know before you decide to visit it!
London Design Festival is an annual event created to promote the city, its design, and to celebrate design overall. It was created in 2003 as a way to promote the quickly growing design scene, and now 17 editions later, the festival is one of the most renowned design events in the world.
The event lasts for 9 days, with this year’s edition happening from the 14th to the 22nd of September. Last year the event was a success, with almost six hundred thousand visitors. Past editions have commissioned some of the world’s most celebrated designers as Zaha Hadid’s Urban Nebula. There has also been room to controversial art installations as the Chair Grab by Tom Dixon in 2005.
The Landmark Projects consists of major art installations around the city. Usually, it involves commissioning some of the world’s best designers, artists, and architects. Over the years, projects have appeared in some of the most important places in London, such as St Paul’s Cathedral and Trafalgar Square.
The London Design Festival is known for unique collaborations with the V&A museum. During the London Design Festival, there are usually a few special exhibitions and/or installations.
The London Design Festival is divided by districts, which are a key component to the festival! Each district has events during this week and altogether the districts will host about 400 events during this celebration of design. Above Mayfair Design District.
