The Design Museum has announced their programme for the 2015 London Design Festival, which will present a wide range of exhibitions, events and installations that celebrate new talent and ideas across the capital.
So let’s take a closer look at what to expect from this year’s festival, which will be taking place from the 19th to the 27th September in case you were wondering.
Designers in Residence – 9th September – 31st March 2016: heading into its eighth year, this annual exhibition invited four emerging talents from the world of design to showcase their ideas. The Design Museum offers them a space in which to provoke conversations, actions and thoughts that surround the conceptions of migration (this year’s theme). Having been to see several of these exhibitions in the past I can honestly say that ideas are never in short supply no matter what the theme is!
The Eighty-eight Vol.2 launch with Jamie Cullum: no date has been set for this panel discussion to celebrate the second volume of The Eighty-eight described as ‘an occasional magazine for the adventurous thinker’. The discussion will then be followed by a DJ set from Jamie Cullum, the magazine’s curator.
Like Me: our bond with brands: Lippencott (known for creating the coca-cola ribbon and Campbell’s soup can) are curating a pop-up exhibition that explores our bond with brands. Are they purely tools of corperate power?
Camper x Disegno Walks: as part of the Life on Foot: Camper at the Design Museum exhibition, this series of walks delve into some of London’s design locations and hearing from some of the people who work in them. Each of the walks ends with a tour of the exhibition.
E&Y at the Design Museum: entering their 30th anniversary year, Japanese furniture company E&Y present their pieces in Europe for the very first time
Designs of the Year 2015: Social Vote: this annual celebration of the world of design promoting or delivering change is a flagship exhibition for the Design Museum. It gives the online community to choose their own favourite with the social vote – after the judges have selected their Design of the Year.
So there you go. Do any of those take your fancy design lovers? If so which ones in particular do you want to go and see?
