A few more snaps from London Design Festival… from top: Interviewing the incredible Sarah Elenany, a problem-solving product designer who’s found herself in the world of fashion, as part of the V&A’s Salon Talks – I also interviewed Marina Willer, Pentagram‘s first female director; Benjamin Hubert‘s prototype lampshades made of tights (honestly!) at designjunction; Bocci‘s fabulous bright yellow lights at designjunction

…the most beautiful light switch I have ever seen, which completely made my evening, on a lamp by John Galvin; and Max Fraser starting proceedings for the Maggie’s Joy of Living auction, which made £5,500 on the night. The fixed price items are for sale for the rest of show.

Hope everyone’s still having fun!
