Design for Life

The annual London Design Festival has been taking place in the capital over the last week, with exciting sites dotted around the centre of town and plenty to pique any aesthete’s interest.

It’s an annual highlight in the TB_HQ office calendar, we make no secret of our passion for great design and we get all gooey at the prospect of seeing new and exciting products and discovering creations from inspirational designers, both old hands and those new to the scene.

On TB_HQ’s doorstep is the first ever London Design Biennale which has taken over the beautiful Somerset House until 27th September and features installations, artworks, prototypes and designs from around the globe brought together to explore the important role design will play in our future.

This fully interactive exhibition features work from world-leading architects, designers and scientists guided by the bold overall theme of ‘Utopia by Design’.

One of our perennial favourite events is DesignJunction, which has this year moved from its former home at New Oxford Street’s Old Sorting Office (via last year’s pop-up at the old St. Martin’s School of Art building) to a new and shiny home at Granary Square in Kings Cross, an area which has benefitted from impressive and sympathetic regeneration in recent years, and the perfect setting for the event.

Every conceivable product for the design-savvy home is on show, whether you’re embarking on your own Grand Design, or just looking for a few accessories to make your space that little bit more interesting.

Spread across three spaces in and around the old warehouses of Granary Square (also the new home of St. Martins School of Art), DesignJunction finally feels like its found its perfect place, being right in the heart of London’s emerging design and creative quarter. Kings Cross was for so long a wasteland (in the literal sense) yet is buzzing with creativity these days and one of our favourite destinations outside of the West End (and conveniently only a hop skip and jump by tube from TB_HQ).

The London Design Fair at Shoreditch’s Old Truman Brewery building was also well worth a visit, with more beautiful designs on show from established brands and some fantastic up and coming talent from across the globe. Exhibitors from Sweden, Norway, Italy, Korea, Portugal and of course the UK were showing off their new season designs, as well as stunning prototype products from a number of new designers. Accessories, textiles, wallpapers, ceramics and of course some stunning furniture make for an Alladin’s cave of interior inspiration set over three vast floors of this historic East London landmark.
