This multi-event, multi-venue, nine-day festival takes place across the capital. The V&A will act as a central hub, hosting talks, events and exhibitions, including the intriguing 'Wish List', which showcases the work of ten up-and-coming and ten established designers, who were each asked to create something they've always wanted, but never been able to find.
If interior design is more your cup of tea, head to Trafalgar Square to see 'A Place Called Home'. A collaboration with Airbnb, it consists of four pop-up 'houses'. Identical from the outside, each will contain a room with a very individual character, dreamed up by four different design practices: Jasper Morrison, Patternity, Raw Edges and Studioilse.
Not technically organised by the LDF crew, but arranged to coincide with the festival, there are also five key hubs – or 'design districts' – across London where there’s masses more going on: Chelsea Design Quarter, Clerkenwell Design Quarter, Brompton Design District, Fitzrovia Now and Shoreditch Design Triangle. In these areas you can expect late-night shopping events at design destinations such as Skandium and The Conran Shop, as well as exhibitions in galleries including Roca and the Geffrye Museum.
