Taking place at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, London Design Week is back for 2019, showcasing the best and brightest of world-class design talent. Spread over six days in March – from the 10th to the 15th – this event is unmissable for anymore who wants the inside scoop on the latest design trends and styles.
Over the course of London Design Week 2019, Design Centre will play host to a dynamic programme of talks, showcases and displays. The event is a celebration of design, and is a unique source of knowledge, inspiration and expertise for all who visit, whether they are a professional in the industry or a design lover.
Over 600 international brands – including 120 showrooms – are participating in London Design Week 2019, allowing visitors to the event the opportunity to discover designer collaborations, see intricate details close up, find advice and discuss design projects.
This year, the showrooms have been influenced by designs from around the world; showroom visitors should expect to see combinations of sophisticated patterns and shapes, beautiful materials and vibrant colours. The showrooms will be displaying new launches, artisan demonstrations, and meet-the-designer sessions, as well as their ‘Legends’ themed window displays.
For many of the showrooms, the ‘Legends’ window displays have been inspired by the photographic archives of iconic images. For example, designer Henry Prideaux is partnering with Fox Linton to incorporate an amazing image of model Twiggy into a window display; de Le Cuona has selected a colourful image of Marilyn Monroe; Sophie Ashby has been influenced by a portrait of Bianca Jagger; and Yabu Pushelberg is integrating an image of film star Michael Caine into the display for SA Baxter Foundry & Design Studio.
On London Design Week’s main stage, a carefully curated programme of talks and panel discussions – called Conversations in Design – will share design insights from an international line-up of influential speakers. These figures include the likes of Katharine Pooley, Charlie Casely-Hayford, Ben Spriggs, Michael Anastassiades, Sarah Miller Fiona McCarthy and Lady Henrietta Spencer Churchill.
Over the course of the event, there will also be a range of inventive pop-ups, a chance to see specially commissioned installations, and plenty of food and drink. Entrance to London Design Week 2019 at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, is free and the event is providing courtesy transport.
