London Design Festival 2017
Team Offbeat | 22 Aug

From 16-24th September, London opens its doors to the annual London Design Festival. Celebrating the very best of design, hundreds of exhibits, shows and installations will be showing their latest and most innovative designs. With so much to choose from, we have a look at three of the best events to visit this year.

Villa Walala

A textile graduate from the University of Brighton, Camille Walala’s work has evolved from textile design to art direction, interior design and installation projects since establishing her studio in 2009. Influenced by South African Ndebele tribes, Walala uses bold geometric pattern with playful, positive typography. Using these colourful graphic designs, she will be transforming Broadgate’s urban landscape into a bright, colourful and immersive building-block installation. The vibrant pops of colour are guaranteed to cheer up your day and put a smile on your face.


As part of London Design Festival 2017, Designjunction will be showcasing over 200 brands across four venues at King’s Cross. Including lighting, furniture and accessory brands, the exhibition will include pop-up shops and installations showcasing the latest collections by numerous international designers. British brands including Decode, Another Country and Very Good & Proper will be exhibiting on the top floor of Cubitt House, whilst the ground floor will be dedicated to Lightjuction, showcasing lighting solutions and inspiration. Also at Cubitt House, The Material Collective will present new and innovative materials and explore how these can be used in design today. Don’t miss this great opportunity to catch up on all the latest design technologies and trends.

Farrow and Ball Colour Week

To celebrate London Design Festival, Farrow and Ball have commissioned a fleet of iconic London black taxis to be decorated in their colourful wallpaper designs. To catch a glimpse of these richly decorated cabs, they will be dotted around London Design Festival venues. Farrow and Ball will also be hosting a series of design installations and workshops across their four London showrooms. Visit the Islington site to view an exhibition by sculptor and woodworker Joel Parkes, or join an inspirational talk by Farrow and Ball’s international colour consultant, Joa Studholme. Alternatively, express your inner creativeness by attending a free screen-printing workshop held at the Chelsea and Hampstead stores.
