DESIGNJUNCTION 19-22 SEPTEMBER
designjunction has announced its theme for this year’s show as ‘(Re)act’. Taking place this September, designjunction is one of the many activations in the area that has led to King’s Cross being named as a Design District for the first time.
designjunction calls upon its exhibitors, as agents of change, to react to issues, to re-imagine opportunities and to re-connect with their audiences. Exhibitors will be creating challenging products and activations that will encourage visitors to think differently about the world and the spaces they inhabit. designjunction brings designers and makers from different disciplines and cultures together in one space.
From 19-22 September, designjunction will reveal a stellar line-up of unique experiences and breakthrough brands at London’s newest and most exciting creative hub. Leading international names such as Icons of Denmark, Very Good & Proper, LSA International and PAD Home will exhibit alongside emerging designers and brands including bespoke furniture and cabinet maker Brook Studio and British ceramicist Emma Alington, among others.
In addition to never-before-seen product launches, there will also be a curated selection of thought-provoking activations, interactive features and boutique pop-up shops across three key exhibition spaces: Cubitt House, Lewis Cubitt Park and West Handyside Canopy. King’s Cross Light Tunnel will also be home to the RADO Star Prize awards programme for the first time, whilst the Everyman Cinema will host an engaging talks programme, curated by Grant Gibson.
Cubitt House, a dedicated pavilion located adjacent to Coal Drops Yard, will house both cutting edge and iconic furniture and lighting brands showcasing their very latest creations across two floors. The show will also include an expanded Cubitt Park structure, which will give an opportunity to the design community to discover emerging talent as well as global brands showcasing their designs in London for the first time.
The Canopy, located under a heritage protected wrought iron structure, will house 70 premium boutiques and emerging design labels, selling everything from fashion accessories to technology, ceramics, glassware and stationery.
Now in its ninth year, designjunction is a curated show of the best in international furniture, lighting and design objects. For the past nine years, it has proven itself to be the most anticipated five days in exhibition during the London Design Festival, 2018.
