One of the world’s most important design festivals took place mid-September, in London, namely the London Design Festival, which has a worldwide influence on design trends for the coming year so naturally we wanted to tell you all about it. LFD is an annual event held to celebrate and promote London as a premier design destination, targeting both trade and consumer visitors; featuring an abundance of pop-up shops, cafés and restaurants amongst the more traditional furniture stands which encompass a whole myriad of events and venues.

The idea behind this event is to create a destination - it is much more than design experience. People go there not to simply whizz around and then leave; it is an event at which you spend entire days and are inspired.

Everything represented a collection of the finest examples of clever ideas and designers who have dared to explore unchartered territory, break new grounds, take the road less travelled and tell untold stories. Ideas such as these allow us to move the design industry forwards in new ways, whilst maintaining  respect for old traditions.

This week we will cover our favourite product releases, experimental designs, events, installations, pop-ups and much more...  and who knows, you might come across one of these new product designs sooner or later at Lane Crawford, Homeless, IROCO Design or Eclectic…

Bocci collaborated with the antique dealer Mallet on an exhibition at the grand Ely House. Together, they unveiled two unique chandeliers with the specific intention of blurring the boundary between antique and contemporary design, and suggesting continuity through colour and texture.

Hay & Wrong for Hay launched a ridiculously good looking exhibition of their collections, alongside a unique dining experience. Their beautiful showroom, set within a Georgian house in St James’s, was transformed into a celebration of all that is beautiful – superb interiors, lovely product and super-styling.

British photographer Dan Tobin Smith transformed his East London studio into ‘The first law of Kipple’- an immersive and vibrant installation comprising thousands of colour-coated objects. The various cluttered items have been collected by both the artist and from public donations amassed from a social media announcement, bringing together an expansive range of stories, subjects and shapes.
