I Loved #DesignLondon
I'm not quite sure where to start! There was so much talent on display at the design event Design London, that it has taken me two weeks to digest everything and to have a think about how I could do it justice with a blog post! Because I really want to convey how inspiring it was to attend and to show off some of the amazing visual designs on display.
Design London, was the largest official trade destination at this year’s London Design Festival marking a new phase for what was formerly known as 100% Design, the U.K.’s longest
running trade show dedicated to design. The dynamic show was housed in Magazine London, a
brand new, state-of-the-art venue on the Greenwich Peninsula overlooking Canary Wharf and just a short walk from North Greenwich Station and the shiny new Design District.
An essential platform for those looking to network and source the latest and most innovative furniture, lighting and design pieces during the annual festival, the four-day event boasted a jam-packed programme of engaging content and a highly curated selection of sought-after design brands from around the globe.
With an initial stop at the Campari bar (which was in full swing by the time I arrived). I felt suitably equipped to take a look around.
And my first wonderful find was at the stand of Bokart Glass, an innovative company adding a unique element to architecture when it comes to design. Using state-of-the-art techniques that have been developed in-house, their collection includes: textured glass, etched glass, antique mirror and many more but it was their patterned mirror collection that really caught my attention, which is why they are definitely worthy of me highlighting them today.
You'll have no doubt seen me sharing the fantastic lighting installation by award-winning British & bespoke sculptural lighting company, Cameron House on my Instagram too, their stunning handmade piece - Kuulas, had pride of place as you walked into the venue, offering a wonderful "pop of colour" which was quite fitting because the sun was setting over the London skyline.
Overall this was a wonderful sensory experience from an interior design perspective and if you would like more information on the full list of brands and keynote speakers at the event. Please visit the Design London website.
