The London Design Festival celebrates its twentieth anniversary in 2022 with another year of events, exhibitions and installations celebrating some of the world’s best designers and interrogating the boundaries of what design even is.
One of the highlights of the capital’s cultural calendar, expect sensational installations, museum exhibits, Design Districts with clusters of creative activity across the capital, as well s the Global Design Forum where creative leaders will exchange ideas and solutions for some of the most pressing issues of our time.
Highlights include an outdoor installation from Rotterdam-based designer Sabine Marcelis celebrating the Brutalist form of Centre Point and a baffling but exciting sounding ‘life-sized media platform’ from Sony Design which will play sensorial effects transforming ‘simple boundary surfaces into an infinite vista through shifting light, colour and sound’. There’s also ‘Henge’, a project at Wren Landing in Canary Wharf inspired by Neolithic stone structures. As usual, the festival hub will be at the V&A.
