London Design Festival highlights

Dezeen Wire:
here's a roundup of the most interesting London Design Festival events that caught our eye when we weren't busy at Dezeen Space last week.

Some of the most memorable events of the week involved performances and interaction. An enormous red dress hosted concerts in the East End, Paul Cocksedge transformed old records into amplifiers and Noma Bar's dog-shaped cutout machine produced instant punched artworks.

At the main hub at the V&A AL_A's Timber Wave provided a dramatic entrance and the Bourollec brothers' soft landscape in the Raphael Court offering a place to rest weary feet.

At Designjunction, Another Country showed new furniture and a range of utilitarian accessories and New Zealand brand Resident launched their first collection. Meanwhile, the second edition of Tramshed featured Studioilse's furniture with removable baskets and new products and furniture by Benjamin Hubert for De La Espada (look out for our story on Dezeen soon).

Popular talks and presentations included a discussion on the state of British manufacturing at Tom Dixon's Dock, Marcel Wanders' presentation at the V&A (see our story on his new collection for Marks & Spencer here) and a lively Pecha Kucha at Designjunction, which will be available soon on Dezeen Screen.

We explored the new exhibition at the Ligne Roset Westend showroom for Dezeen Screen, where you can also see interviews with the exhibitors at our micro-exhibition Dezeen platform.

Update: See a whistlestop tour of the festival in a movie on Dezeen Screen.
