he London Design Festival 2015, the annual calendar of events, which revolves around the world of design, is now nearing its close. This year, the design festival will end on Sunday the 27th September. However, its last two days are still going to be jam packed of dates and events not to be missed. We are directing our attention to all the architects, design aficionados and inquisitive soul, who, for some reason or another, have let the rest of festival slip away. Do not despair, there is still time to plan an impromptu trip to the British capital.
If you are hunting for the latest trends in interior design or looking for something different that will blow your mind, The London Design Festival is the right place for you. First set up in 2003, The London Design Festival is now one of the most important design and architecture events around the world. And each year, London becomes the creative capital par excellence.
As in past editions, people have flocked in their thousands. Be it the 350 installations scattered around town; the calibre of the names taking part like Zaha Hadid, Luca Nichetto, Nendo and Marc Newson; or the free exhibitions in some of London’s famous art and design museums like the Victoria and Albert. This year, Somerset House was the place to be seen at: an exhibit of the top ten international designers was just one of the myriad of things which caught our interest.
One for all? Not to be missed is the piece by British sculptor Alex Chinneck: A Bullet from a Shooting Star, namely a large electric pile which is over 35 m high... tilted upside down and on show in Greenwich.
