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).
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.
