London Design Fair Showcases Design from Across the Globe

The London Design Fair 2019, which takes place from 19 September, will present an inspirational, hand-picked line-up of superlative contemporary design, offering visitors a truly absorbing and informative experience. 

This highly creative exposition will once again transform the much-loved Old Truman Brewery into a thrilling centre of original, innovative and aesthetic design. 

Housed under one impressive roof, this year’s Fair will host an extensive range of brands, global country pavilions, and a fresh edit of new components. International design collaboration Adorno will present Crossovers, a showcase of dynamic works selected by ten curators from ten countries, in what is billed as ‘a cross-cultural collectible design journey’. 

Crossovers celebrates those global designers and communities around the world fighting to keep local design and craft alive. The International Craft Pavilion will make its debut at the Fair, taking the place of the British Craft Pavilion. 

Established just three years ago, the British Craft Pavilion became the must-see exhibit for high-end craft during the London Design Festival. 

In 2019, the newly named International Craft Pavilion responds to a call for the greater global representation of craft. 

An entirely new element of this year’s Fair is The Bathroom Gallery. In partnership with ELLE Decoration UK, this bespoke exhibition will spotlight some of the world’s foremost bathroom brands, including Laufen and Roca. 

Now in its third year at London Design Festival, creative lighting exhibition [d]arc room has a new home at the Fair.

With a dedicated hall on the Old Truman Brewery’s second floor, [d]arc room—a creative undertaking by arc and darc magazines—understands the necessity for brands to show lighting in an imaginative way. 

Using pods, lighting products will be presented in a pared down manner, helping visitors to better understand the utility of architectural and decorative lighting. 

In addition, ‘[d]arc room: live’ promises an amazing array of speakers, talking about a variety of lighting-related subjects. 

Moreover, ‘[d]arc room: workshops will offer an interactive, hands-on series of workshops in which participants can get to grips with the most recent issues in lighting technology. 

Very much looking forward to the Fair, Jimmy MacDonald, Founder and Director of London Design Fair, remarks: “This year we have been exploring elements not yet adequately incorporated into the either London Design Festival or the London Design Fair. We are launching The Bathroom Gallery, a curated exhibition in partnership with ELLE Decoration UK, and we will host the [d]arc room lighting exhibit—two extremely well edited and executed trade elements. 

“I’m also excited about Crossovers, the collectable design exhibition by Adorno: ten curators from ten countries with sixty pieces—wow!”
