A refreshing addition to designjunction, Campari®, Italy’s iconic red bittersweet apéritif, will host a 10-day residency in King’s Cross with the ‘Campari Creates’ customised narrowboat in the Granary Square waterway. The centrepiece of the residency will be an installation by Eley Kishimoto commissioned by Campari to adorn the banks of the canal with a bespoke art installation featuring the iconic Campari logo. Additionally, visitors will be served a selection of Campari cocktails and Italian street food bringing the spirit of Milan’s stylish Navigli district to central London.

Visitors can also enjoy a serving of white ports and tonics at the pop-up Tala mini bar, set within a refurbished vintage car on the square. Tala will also showcase an installation of its Voronoi bulbs that will form a forest-like canopy above the car.

Engage in lively talks and debates
designjunction presents a two-day programme of lively talks and debates at The Office Group (TOG). Anchored around the show’s theme ‘where design meets’, designjunction’s 2017 Talks Programme is designed to inspire, engage and provoke. Over the two days, fourteen sessions will delve into a variety of engaging topics that affect and inform the design industry. From digital and workspace, to materials and home, the programme includes sessions with a stellar line-up of leading designers and creative brands (21-22 September).

Indulge in some retail therapy at The Canopy

A temporary pop-up retail venue featuring over 70 retail brands and emerging designers, The Canopy gives visitors the opportunity to browse and buy design-led home and fashion accessories, jewellery, technology, ceramics, stationery and textiles under one roof. Choose from Another Studio’s selection of homewares including its Timber Tailor wooden light pendants, Such & Such’s curated offering of concrete pedants, linen and ceramic tableware and more, the latest range of unisex sunglasses by Monc London, the new Milan stationery collection from Papersmiths, or Dashel’s selection of urban helmets to name a few.

Pit-stop at designjunction’s creative cafés and pop-up food stalls
For those looking to refuel with a snack and a drink whilst taking in all the design inspiration, designjunction presents two creative cafés and a host of pop-up vendors.

Celebrating the launch of 2LG and Custhom’s new collection of luxury wallpapers, linens and velvets, the London based design studios will bring an interactive café to Cubitt Park. Visitors can participate in live screen printing, adding colour and pattern to the space and walls of the café.

As part of an exciting collaboration, Kickstarter and the Turner Prize-winning collective Assemble will stage an immersive café, in The Canopy, to showcase SPLATWARE, a new line of limited edition experimental tableware products made by Granby Workshop.

London-based Hourglass will be operating designjunction’s purpose-built cafes across the show areas. Re-charge and relax with locally-sourced artisan coffees, teas and specialty hot drinks alongside a short vegetarian menu, freshly baked cakes and pastries.

Returning to the buzzing Granary Square, Real Food Festival will bring a selection of the most delicious street food vans in London. Choose from the carefully selected, top-quality artisan food options on offer.

Also making a return to the show, Paleta Girls will bring visitors its delicious and refreshing superfruit ice lollies that are packed with 100% natural ingredients. All paletas are handmade and free from refined sugar, relying on the natural sweetness of the fruits and just a touch of honey or dates.

What better beer brand could do a pop-up in The Canopy section than Canopy Beer Co? The aptly named brand is a brewery and tap room based a stone’s throw from Brockwell Park, South London. Their emphasis is on drinkable, vibrant beers made with minimal intervention – no filtration, no finings and no pasteurisation. Canopy Beer Co will be serving their small batch beers in The Canopy across show open dates.

Be productive, creative and stay connected at the pop-up workspace
Creating a pop-up workspace at designjunction’s Cubitt House, on-demand meeting space provider Breather collaborates with furniture manufacture Modus. The Breather x Modus workspace will be the perfect place for trade and press visitors to work, meet, focus and get online. The space will feature Modus’s expanded ‘Edge’ collection by design consultancy PearsonLloyd.

Support young and emerging designers

designjunction also sets the bar for new and emerging design, with displays of the UK’s inaugural Rado Star Prize competition, where a shortlist of ten finalists’ projects will be displayed in The Crossing. Exploring the theme ‘Design Meets Time’, the winning design will be announced at the show with the winner receiving a £5,000 cash prize and a Rado Ceramica watch. Additionally, the public can select their favourite project among the finalists by voting at the show, with the winner of the public vote receiving a Rado Ceramica watch.

Additionally, ARTS THREAD, the online educational tool designed to connect industry students, universities and schools will showcase a curated selection of new designers. TroupingColour, a project developed to create opportunities for young designers who join forces to exhibit their works will also be on show.

View illuminating lighting brands and impressive light installations
The show welcomes back lightjunction, an area on the ground floor of Cubitt House dedicated to decorative lighting brands from across the globe. Rich Brilliant Willing launches the sculptural Palindrome Chandelier, whilst Martinelli Luce showcases its Cyborg and Plisse lamps for the first time in the UK. In addition, Resident will create an installation suspended over the staircase at Cubitt House with its Circus Light, a system of interconnected rings that will form a striking vertical decoration.

A further array of lighting brands and bespoke installations can also be found throughout the show’s other sites. In The Crossing lighting installations not to miss include a collaboration with Blackbody and Haviland, a union of light and porcelain. LG Display will also exhibit its OLED light panels, and will launch the LG OLED Design competition encouraging emerging and established designers to enter into this contest.

Other lighting brands exhibiting at designjunction include Marset, Artifact Lighting, Di Classe, Enigma Lighting, Dark Light Design and many more.

Discover materials that appeal, inspire and intrigue
From traditional ceramics to cutting-edge 3D printing technology, designjunction continues to be a leading platform for innovative product design.

The SCIN Gallery, recognised for sourcing materials and advising architects, designers and specifiers in an inspirational and informative way hosts an exhibition of curated global materials that touches on the future, debates the truly sustainable and welcomes the beautiful.

Celebrating 50 years of innovative designs and materials, Corian® continues its evolution with the introduction of three unique and captivating aesthetics – Concrete, Onyx and Prima. These new collections of colours and patterns will be creatively and elegantly featured in The Crossing with a series of room sets.

designjunction 2017 London Projects

designjunction sets the bar for ground-breaking installations and collaborative projects this September

London 21–24 September 2017

#wheredesignmeets

designjunction, London’s leading destination for contemporary interior design and culture, returns for its seventh year taking centre stage at the King’s Cross site from 21-24 September.

As the platform for cutting-edge design at the annual London Design Festival, the show delivers a specially curated programme of stellar international brands, striking installations, pop-up shops, exciting collaborations, and more.

Ceramic Art Installation

GRANARY SQUARE

A first for designjunction, a collaboration with Turkishceramics will present a striking and fully immersive ceramic installation that will be created in the central fountain space. The selected artist Adam Nathaniel Furman will present ‘Gateways’, a series of colourful tiled gates that will invite visitors to take a journey through the rich history of ceramics in Turkey. The four gates are four meters high, each encompassing a different design story including: The Classic Gate, The Timber Gate, The Retro Gate and The Metro Gate.

Offering beautiful flowers direct from Dutch fields, flower delivery service bloomon will create a whimsical walk underneath a canopy of flowers with a pastel coloured passageway on Granary Square. Covered in foliage inside and out, the tunnel will be closed at one end with a secret hidden door, behind which a flower-filled room will host intimate workshops and talks, providing intrigue and inspiration.

The square will also provide a platform for a new collaboration with Renault UK, and will showcase Renault’s unique design philosophy with the award-winning concept TreZor car housed inside a bespoke interactive structure. Additionally, Renault’s collaboration with Central Saint Martins UAL (CSM) has challenged design students to design a car for the future with the results also on display at the show.

Campari®, Italy’s iconic red bittersweet apéritif, will host a two-week residency in Kings Cross. Campari Creates recreates the spirit of Milan’s stylish Navigli canal district, bringing a customised narrowboat to the Granary Square waterway throughout designjunction. The residency will focus on bringing two of Milan’s greatest exports to Kings Cross: Campari and creativity.

Over the two-week residency, a series of ‘Campari Creates Masterclasses’ allows attendees to get creative whilst sipping one of Campari’s signature serves. Alongside this, an artist will be commissioned to build a bespoke public installation inspired by Campari’s long history of creativity and design.

Granary Square will also welcome the Tala Mini bar that will serve a concoction of white ports and tonics from a refurbished vintage Mini Cooper. The Mini will also house a cluster of Voronoi bulbs on its roof to form a forest-like canopy, taking inspiration from the natural world.

Welcoming visitors to the show, three glass box pavilions by new initiative Remote Possibilities will house the show’s main reception. This focal point for designjunction visitors will be located at the entrance to Granary Square, alongside specially curated headline projects.

Design practice Maynard has partnered with designjunction to mastermind the wayfinding strategy for visitors coming to the King’s Cross site. Working in collaboration with designjunction’s Graphic Directors, BCMH, they have devised a strategy that will be used across the show.

Maynard has also worked with Marshalls to design a new range of brutalist inspired concrete street furniture. The modular range which includes seating, lighting and cycle parking will be launched at designjunction and will be positioned around Granary Square for the event.

THE CROSSING

Running through the centre of Central Saint Martins, The Crossing will play home to installations and partnership projects, including a collaboration with Rado, who will be showing finalists’ designs for the first Rado Star Prize UK competition. Targeting the next generation of young British designers, the winner will be announced at the show on the evening of Thursday 21 September.

Lighting up The Crossing, a union of light and porcelain welcomes a collaboration from two French studios BLACKBODY and Haviland, drawing visitors to glance up toward clusters of the ‘Helen, Light & Porcelain’ bespoke chandelier.

CUBITT HOUSE AND CUBITT PARK

Bringing a luxe approach to the VIP and Press room, The Lounge by Kirkby Design x Eley Kishimoto will showcase each of their unique styles. Eley Kishimoto’s passion for pattern will adorn the walls and furniture within this space serving to relax as well as engage those who visit.

Kirkby Design x Eley Kishimoto:

The Lounge, located in new venue for 2017 Cubitt Park, will also play host to several special events including the Press Preview on 21 September; a breakfast for RIBA members; the Blueprint iGuzzini Architectural Photography Awards; and an NLA networking event.

In celebration of photography that fuses architecture, Blueprint Magazine launches its first ever Blueprint iGuzzini Architecture Photography Awards, aimed at both professional and amateur photographers. Photography from the finalists will be displayed within Cubitt Park, with two overall winners chosen by a public vote and announced during designjunction.

Prizes for the winning photography include a £1000 cash prize (professional) and an iGuzzini light worth £1000 (amateur), with 25% of the competition entrance fee being donated to charity Teddy’s Wish.

Suspended over the staircase of Cubitt House, Resident Studio will create an installation with its Circus Light that encompasses a system of interconnected rings to form a striking vertical decoration. Each brass ring projects an elegantly diffused warm LED light source outwards around a 360-degree plane.
