London Design Festival highlights - installations

The curtain has now closed on London Design Festival for 2016. London certainly pulled out all the stops to showcase its talented citizens and remarkable ability to bring together talent from across the globe.  It’s a creative city at the best of times but during the festival it really comes to life through the various design districts and landmark projects.  Anyone with an interest in design should try to make it part of their calendar of events and exhibitions. Where it gets tricky is deciding what is going to make your selection out of the 400+ events, talks, workshops and installations. I had a chock-a-block schedule and I didn’t even see 10% of the possibilities and it wasn’t just me running from one place to another in a desperate bid to fit it all in.

A major feature of the Festival each year is the ambitious programme of special projects and installations centred at the Victoria & Albert Museum the Festival’s official hub. The series of installations were totally arresting and were accompanied by some truly splendid talks.

London Design Festival highlights - coming soon

The London Design Festival has just come to a close and I’m in need of a serious spa day. In the last 8 days I have attended 37 events and worn out a pair of trainers stomping across London. It’s all been in the name of design and I hope you’ve been following along on instagram to see the action as it was happening. In the coming blog posts I’ll be sharing my top picks of the events and shows I visited across London.

Below when I met Mathieu Lehanneur at his wonderful V&A Installation Liquid Marble.

Food revolution starts in the Kitchen with Grundig

Earlier this month I attended Europe’s biggest consumer electronics fair, IFA in Berlin with Grundig to see chef Massimo Bottura of the Michelin three-starred restaurant Osteria Franciscan. He is the current title holder of the No.1 Restaurant in the World.  It was  whistle stop trip - I was literally there for 24 hours before flying to Paris but it was a rewarding insight into the future of the modern kitchen. 
IFA is a serious mega show with 158,000 square meters of exhibition space and nearly 2000 exhibitors. It was almost entirely a sea of men in suits, very different from the usual exhibitions I attend. Manufacturers from across the globe attend to showcase the concepts and products that will define the future of home appliances and consumer electronics. The 2016 edition featured appliances intended to make homes smarter, healthier, more sustainable and better connected.
