Wednesday's speakers at Dezeen Live

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.

Music featured on the show will be by upcoming East London band Strong Asian Mothers, who were our featured artist on Dezeen Music Project on Monday.

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.

The shows are part of the 100% Design Seminar Programme and take place in the auditorium. Each show will be filmed and broadcast later on See the full lineup for the week here.
