Saturday's speakers at Dezeen Live

London Design Festival: we're hosting the last in our series of live shows at 100% Design today from 2:45pm, including talks with designer Clemens Weisshaar, restaurant founder Shamil Thakrar and trend forcaster Li Edelkoort (above).

Music featured on the show will be by artists on Indian record label EarthSync, one of which is also featured on Dezeen Music Project today.

Curated to provide a mixture of insight, intelligence and sheer entertainment, the shows feature a host of bright young talents and established figures. Each day, Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs interviews leading figures from the design world, including a daily “design brain” – a leading journalist, writer or thinker who helps pinpoint key movements and trends emerging during London Design Festival.

Each Dezeen Live show also highlights emerging talent exhibiting at 100% Design and includes 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 is filmed and will be broadcast later on See the full lineup for the week here.
