London Design Festival

Free

Started in 2003, the London Design Festival is a citywide exhibition of design in its broadest scope.

Venues from the V&A to Trafalgar Square will host design installations by local and international designers. This year’s highlights include: VOID by Dan Tobin and The Experience Machine, inviting visitors to wander around large-scale projections of the insides of gemstones, Design tours of Westminster Cathedral, design open studios, The Ravensbourne Postgraduate Degree show, and Take The Plunge, an immersive installation at the OXO Tower Wharf.

Of particular note are what the festival calls “Landmark Projects” which are large scale design/architectural installations, incluiding Please Be Seated, by British designer Paul Cocksedge in Finsbury Avenue, Broadgate. The massive, curved installation is designed for anyone from city workers to the culturally curious to sit on, walk under, lean against or even use for some shade.
