The London Design Festival was established in 2009 and it celebrates and promotes London as the design capital of the world, creating a platform for inspirational design initiatives.
This year it incuded a major new event, the London Design Biennale – which took place at Somerset House from 7 to 27 September. The Festival also added Brixton as a new Design District. It is the first Festival after Brexit and the organisers are adamant that it is important that London remains a global hub of design. ”The Festival offers a snapshot of why we have such a reputation”. The Festival supports the Mayor of London’s message that the capital is united and open for business.
