Installations at the V&A

King’s Cross will be transformed into a design quarter from September 21 until the 24. More than 200 brands will be showcasing with the star of the show being the vibrant Gateways installation from designer Adam Nathaniel Furman. There will also be a flower tunnel from Bloomon and word has it that it’s very Instagrammable. If you love all things design make sure you go this place as you’ll be amazed!
If you’ve been to London, you’ve probably already spotted the work of Camille Walala around town, but her most notable and last work is the fun-filled Walala x Play maze installation at the NOW Gallery in Greenwich. For this year’s London Design Festival (LDF) landmark project, the textile designer will be bringing her bright colors and bold patterns to East London’s urban jungle in the form of a squishy and playful, inflatable pop-up castle, right in the heart of Exchange Square.

CitizenM x Yinka Ilori’s Estate Playground
A similar concept to the one seen in Walala’s pop-up castle. citizenM London Bankside Hotel, collaborating with Yinka Ilori, transformed its entrance into a bright and colorful playground inspired by the bold patterns of traditional Nigerian textiles. The hotel looks amazing even without the installation.
Designers from all over the world will be pushing design’s boundaries in this exciting exhibition at Somerset House. The 30 leading names will be creating collaborative (and we’re guessing creative as well) installations. Don’t miss out on Jaguar’s two-room installation where they’ll be highlighting the creative process of designing the cars of the future.
