Dezeen Magazine

One year ago...

This time last year the London Design Festival was in full swing with Kram/Weisshaar's robotic display lighting up Trafalgar Square, Paul Cocksedge's giant magnetic coin crash-landing at the Southbank and Stuart Haygarth's staircase covered in picture frames at the Victoria & Albert museum.

Alasdhair Willis resigned as chief executive of Established & Sons and Thomas Heatherwick won the London Design Medal 2010.

Meanwhile Marc Newson designed a range of limited-edition shoes for NIKE and Jaime Hayón launched a collection of furniture for London design brand Sé.

John Pawson talked to us about an exhibition of his work at the Design Museum in one of our Dezeen podcasts.

September also saw the opening of a new art gallery by Foster + Partners in New York, UN Studio completed an office building with distinctive coloured light recesses and Michael Young designed a cigar-shaped faceted tower in Hong Kong.
