London Design Festival, which is considered the pillar of London’s path to become a design capital, returns for its 19th edition with an extensive program. The event will take place from 18 to 26 September 2021.
“Greatest designers from all over the world turn the city into a design center and will realize their capacity to shape our society thanks to this program,” says London Design Festival chairman Sir John Sorrell.
The core of this year’s edition will be a new installation titled Architecture + Reality (A+R), staged at V&A Raphael Court and created by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto in collaboration with mixed reality studio and technology developer Tin Drum. The installation is living design that respond to movements of audiences in the space through elements of light, sound, nature and architecture. Furthermore, it will prompt the audience to think about space, climate change, and the role of the nature in the modern world.
Combining British and Nigerian heritage for contemporary design, 2020 Emerging Design Medal winner, Yinka Ilori will transform Tottenam Court Road into an outdoor art gallery in collaboration with students from the University of the Arts London.
As is known, all museums and galleries had closed for a year, that’s why, London is determined to both celebrate being open again and bring everyone out.
