The best of the London Design Festival 2016

Katie | October 3, 2016

First staged in 2003, the London Design Festival was conceived by Sir John Sorrell and Ben Evans to “promote the city’s creativity, drawing in the country’s greatest thinkers, practitioners, retailers and educators to deliver an unmissable celebration of design.” It is now one of the world’s most important annual design events, comprising over 400 events and exhibitions staged by hundreds of organisations across the design spectrum and from all over the world. Here are just a few of our favourite finds from right across the festival…
