Thursday's speakers at Dezeen Live
London Design Festival: Dezeen is hosting a series of innovative daily live shows at 100% Design, continuing today at 5pm with London designers Dominic Wilcox (above) and Asif Khan, and curator and writer Daniel Charny.
Music featured on the show will be by UK tech house producer Reset Robot, who is also our featured artist on Dezeen Music Project today.
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 www.dezeen.com. See the full lineup for the week here.
