The London Design Festival: Our Picks

Over the last few weeks we’ve been looking at designers who’ll be showing at the London Design Festival. With key destinations 100% Design and DesignJunction opening today, and Tent London tomorrow, we thought we’d have another look at some of our favourites.

The Charlie Whinney Workshop will be at Stand L35 at 100% Design. Although we only featured him the other day, there’s never a bad reason to look back and admire his craftsmanship.

 

Dare Studio will be making two appearances – at both DesignJunction and 100% Design – and will be launching a new range of highly modern, yet sumptuous, furniture. We love this desk in particular.

The Tea for One table by DesignK is a sweet, quirky little number that capitalises on out ongoing appetite for nostaligia and the surge of British pride, with a contemporary, playful twist. Lovely.

John Rook’s K Desk and Rimpie Chair, showing at 100% Design on Stand L344, are a delightful mix of clean lines, smooth curves and beautiful wood. Definitely one to look out for.

We’ve posted a few times about the increasing amounts of ‘up-cyclers’ appearing on the scene (see yesterday’s post on Vamp Art) and 20Age were one of our favourites. Their colourful, quirky and creative pieces are sure to catch anyone’s eye, and are great examples of design not taking itself too seriously. They’ll be appearing at Tent London Stand N23, Hall T3.

 

Bristolian design Charlie Crowther Smith will also be at Tent London, with his gorgeous, geometric and – dare we say it – funky pieces. He’ll be at stand F14, Hall T1.
