I managed to hit all the major events during last week's London Design Festival, crisscrossing the city to shows and exhibitions from Shoreditch Triangle to West London. With nearly 300 events, the worlds of fashion, architecture, textiles, home furnishings, and interiors all seemed to converge.
Above: One of my favorite displays was by Australian designer Henry Wilson, whose Things Revisited line is all about making the familiar fresh and new; his work was on view at Design Junction, a showcase of more than 35 cutting-edge international design brands. Wilson's Anglepoise lamp rejuvenates the traditional British utility lamp with a glass shade and an LCD bulb; for more snapshots from the show, see our Facebook album: London Design Week; Day 3: Design Junction).
Above: Peter Marigold's Split Box shelves, displayed at the SCP show, reimagine the concept of wall shelving. For more from SCP, see our Facebook album: London Design Week; Day 1: SCP.
Above: Ercol's classic Butterfly chairs in bright new colors, seen at Tent London, which is now in its fifth year at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane in London's East End. For more from the show, go to London Design Week; Day 4: Tent London.
Above: The company Spineless Classics offers a literal twist on a classic: an entire novel printed in one poster; seen at 100 Percent Design at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre. The above Hound of the Baskervilles poster is available from Rose and Grey for £45 unframed.
