Discover the fascinating world of design at the London Design Festival 2019. The festival spans over a week in various locations in London. It offeres free exhibitions, events and lectures on design.
Numerous projects and installations are planned as extraordinary concepts within this period, are realized in the streets of London and assume design forms. It is the intention that good design has the power to create places where people want to be and where they want to spend time. Cafes, boutiques and spaces whose boundaries disappear within the context of nature, experience and design, also invite you to linger to find the framework for intense exchange and conversation.
Sea ThingsA new installation by Sam Jacob Studio highlighting the need to rethink the global plastics system; to consider its full lifetime journey; and to design future-use into every product. This installation for London Design Festival follows the recent announcement that Sam Jacob Studio has been selected to transform the Cromwell Road entrance.
Titled Sea Things, the concept will take the form of a large scale two-way mirrored cube suspended above visitors with an animated motion graphic internally reflected to an infinity that seems both as wide as the ocean and as large as the challenges we face. The project has an aim to evoke a powerful sense of emotion, so visitors come away feeling empowered with a better understanding of their role alongside technology and design to make the world a more sustainable place.
