Coolest things to see at London design festival

The London Design Festival that celebrated this year the 15th anniversary, will happen between 16-24 September 2017, and we prepared a selection of the coolest things.

Several events will take place and turned London as the design capital for few days. From Audi robots (Outrace by Kram/Weisshaar) to the first-ever opening of the Dean’s Staircase at St Paul’s Cathedral (John Pawson’s Perspectives installation), The London Design Festival has become a key calendar moment in the capital’s autumnal creative season, alongside Fashion Week, Frieze London and the London Film Festival. For the past 15 years, it has provided a well-established platform for industry stars to ascend, and shine.

The show helds 100% Design, Decorex International, designjunction, Focus/17 and The London Design Fair, the Festival will incorporate eight official Design Districts across the capital, including the Brompton Design District.

“Design festivals and fairs tend to focus on finished products or projects, but we are interested in exploring the process of design development and exposing its inner workings,” says the District’s curator Jane Withers. Brompton has always had an experimental approach and been interested in expanding the remit of design. With the Other Stories theme, we wanted to showcase designers who are rethinking both how we make and consume products.”

Christie’s is showing Jonathan Trayte’s and Anton Alvarez in the exhibition Tropicana.

Another cool things: the opening at the Mazzoleni gallery in Mayfair. Mazzoleni Invites: DimoreGallery (5 September-24 September) is the inaugural exhibition in a series whereby design and fashion figures will respond to the gallery’s collection of Italian modern and post-war art. For (Un)Comfort Zone, the gallery will be reconfigured by the Milan-based interior design duo Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci.

Tomasso Brothers Fine Art gallery is where the London-born artist Jacob van der Beugel will display almost 200 ceramic vessels (Memento Mori, 16-24 September). Der Beugel, who was previously assistant to the high-profile ceramicist Edmund de Waal, puts his own spin on the 17th-century Dutch still-life tradition in the Design Festival show.

The exhibition, titled The Graduate(s), opens at Carpenters Workshop Gallery in Mayfair (4-23 September). Another great spot!

The Paris-based design curator Lidewij Edelkoort, who describes herself as a “trend forecaster”, has made the selection. “Together with our assistants we scoured through 50 design schools all over Europe, looking at their best graduates from this year but also from the past couple of years. In some cases we asked academics and designer friends to suggest students and interns they believed were important individuals to note. The exhibition will include works by 14 participants.
