Each year, when the London Design Festival rolls into town it grows bigger, more inspiring, and a little more unwieldy than the year before. This year’s event took place over the course of nine days in hundreds of beautiful—and some hidden—locations across the city. The diverse program of more than 400 exhibitions and events covers not just furniture, but everything under design’s vast umbrella, from fashion to architecture, art and technology.
With so many inspiring sights to see, we set out armed with a well-thumbed festival guide and wearing our most comfortable pair of shoes to connect the dots to bring you the emerging trends and key themes from this year’s showcase.
