Now in its second edition, Design London, the festival’s largest official contemporary design fair will return to Magazine London in North Greenwich on the banks of the River Thames. The four-day extravaganza will also headline as the main attraction in the newest design district, Greenwich Peninsula.
Making its debut in 2021, Design London attracted over 12,000 UK and international visitors. This year, it doubles its size and comprises the main show space, Magazine London and a new temporary pavilion, the “Showground”. The event continues to see some of the best showcases the global design community has to offer. From established brands to newly launched businesses, high-profile names to up-and-coming talent, there’s a plethora of products and ideas to discover at the show this September.
Marlon Cera-Marle, Director of Design at Media 10, comments, “We’re thrilled to bring Design London back for the second time and lead the London Design Festival programme this year. He continues, “Design London is all about championing design excellence, along with originality, innovation and diversity. This year we’re doubling our floor space with an even stronger exhibitor line-up – including both familiar and new names.”
Contract furniture remains a key attraction for visitors to Design London – which welcomes some of the most exciting European furniture brands to the event. HAY will join for the first time with the latest extension of its outdoor range, Palissade, by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Incorporating smart design and innovation into the everyday office, Sweden-based Lintex will show its 2022 collections of room dividers, writing boards and sound-absorbing notice boards.
Cera-Marle adds, “What’s more, we have a curated selection of international pavilions bringing some of the best creative minds and brands to our show; from Denmark to Portugal, Thailand to Korea. We look forward to welcoming and sharing our amazing content with the design community this September.”
Design London returns to Magazine London, North Greenwich from 21 – 24 September 2022. For more information, please visit designlondon.co.uk.
