London Design Festival 2011: Dezeen is looking for 30 young and upcoming designers to showcase their work at Dezeen Space, a project we're hosting at a gallery in Shoreditch, London this autumn.
Each designer’s work will be featured for a period of 24 hours as part of an ever-changing exhibition called Dezeen Platform.
Each day, Dezeen will document the work and interview the designer, publishing a new story on www.dezeen.com and/or our video website www.dezeenscreen.com for the duration of the month-long exhibition.
Dezeen Platform will consist of a 1 x 1 metre space within the gallery; designers of any discipline will be invited to use this space however they like, for example by showing products or creating a temporary installation.
Use of the space will be free of charge.
The feature will be part of Dezeen Space, an experimental, multi-purpose space curated by Dezeen at 54 Rivington Street from 17 September to 16 October. Dezeen Space runs concurrently with London Design Festival, London Fashion Week and Frieze Art Fair.
Dezeen Space will also feature a pop-up shop, a video studio and will be the launch venue for Dezeen’s first book, as well as hosting impromptu events and happenings.
