London Design Festival: Dezeen is hosting a series of innovative daily live shows at 100% Design, starting today at 5pm with Icelandic designer Katrin Olina, design director of IDEO Tom Hulme (above), and critic and commentator Sam Jacob of FAT.
Curated to provide a mixture of insight, intelligence and sheer entertainment, the shows will feature a host of bright young talents and established figures. Each day, Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs will interview leading figures from the design world, including a daily "design brain" - a leading journalist, writer or thinker who will help pinpoint key movements and trends emerging during London Design Festival.
Each Dezeen Live show will also highlight emerging talent exhibiting at 100% Design and include a live DJ playing exclusive music tracks submitted to Dezeen Music Project for the occasion.
