London Design Festival: Past Years in Retrospect
- Goldsmiths' postgraduate design community have a show at The Boiler House, Old Truman Brewery, on Brick Lane as part of the London Design Festival.
- The Greenhaus is a design collective of British designers whose work revolves around concepts of sustainability.
- One of the most surprising things at Tent—one of the LDF shows—is the 'Lazy Chair' by Freshwest Design.
- Fighting a bit of jetlag and a few high-design, low-usefulness maps, I headed to the Brompton Design District for my first day of the London Design Festival.
- Packaging seems to be something on young designers' minds—and one of the best products at the LDF dealing with this issue is by Song Bong Kyu.
- Opening tonight is From Now to Eternity, a show focusing on plastics with work by a collection of designers, including FAT, Tomoko Azumi, Stuart Haygarth and Committee.
- More ceramics from Tent, in the form of everyday, disposable objects cast in porcelain.
- Somewhere between the Villa Savoye and shag-carpeted condos in Mammoth, the spiral staircase lost its way.
