The World's Biggest Design Party
From 8 till 10.30pm on Wednesday 21 September, designjunction and Dezeen join forces to present the world's biggest, open air design party. Expect live DJ sets throughout the night from familiar faces including Alexis Taylor, from Hot Chip, alongside several pop-up bars, and street food from The Real Food Festival.
Hundreds of product launches
Look out for several new launches from new exhibitor Design House Stockholm, which all boast their signature stripped-back style. Heritage brand Elkington & Co presents a new silverware collection with London-based designer Christopher Jenner. Isokon Plus launches the Portmouth backless bench designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, whilst wood-bending TON present new chair Leaf.
Charity project: Who's Casper?
Who's Casper? asks a selection of high profile creatives – including Tom Dixon, Kenneth Grange and Ross Lovegrove – to anonymously customise a Casper stool, designed by Michael Sodeau and manufactured by Modus. Match the designer to the stool using #WhosCasper, and bid on your favourite. All proceeds go to Movement on the Ground – a charity which responds to humanitarian crises across the world.
By keeping each design anonymous, Who's Casper? aims to challenge the emphasis put upon name, reaffirming the significance of personhood and individuality regardless of colour, religion, race, nationality, gender, ethnicity or status.
Micro-exhibition: Dyslexic Design
Designjunction plays host to Dyslexic Design – an exhibition which celebrates the connection between dyslexia and the creative industries. The project, in support of the British Dyslexia Association, will showcase more than 10 dyslexic designers' work over five days during the London Design Festival. The house on Granary Square will be transformed into a spectacular micro-exhibition by celebrated interior designer Ab Rogers.
Hidden at the back of Cubitt House will be a secret garden. The space will be furnished with Deadgood's brand new Naked collection by Magnus Long and Gala Wright alongside a vast array of stunning flowers and plants provided by Bloomon.
