London Design Festival 2017
London Design Festival 2017 was an unravelled showcase of creativity across the capital. The festival took place from 16-24 September 2017 and this year marked the 15th anniversary. #LDF17 is a dynamic celebration of design showcasing the work of artists, architects, designers and retailers. This year was a clear indicator that our city is in fact the capital of design!
The Pulse Team have rounded up our top 3 highlights from the London Design Festival 2017:
1. designjuction gateway
designjunction welcomed visitors to the curated show of cutting edge interior design, with a stunning ceramic gateway by designer Adam Nathaniel Furman and Turkishceramics in Granary Square. The amazing installation consisted of four colourfully tiled arches that encouraged visitors to immerse in walkways of colour. The bold and immersive display reflected historical reference relating to the Ottoman Empire.
2. Villa Walala
The playful installation titled Villa Walala by renowned Camille Walala, was a magnificent display of her bold graphic designs in collaboration with British Land. Located in Broadgate's exchange centre the huge inflatable sculpture has been described as ‘soft-textured building-block castle' evoking the unexpected in amidst the busy city life. An incredible display of vibrancy and colour this was a must see during the London Design Festival 2017.
3. Refection Room
The Victoria and Albert Museum played host to a range of commissioned installations across #LDF17, however the vibrancy of the “Reflection Room” caught our attention. An amazing hall of light was created by Flynn Talbot who transformed the former textile room into an immersive colour experience. Vivid orange and blue hue lights illuminated the space to transcend an incredible display of light.
