London Design Festival 14-23 September 2012

By Dieneke Ferguson

This year will be the 10th London Design Festival . Hidden Art has participated in all the London Design Festivals. Many of our designers will be exhibiting this year and here is our list of what places to visit and where the UK designers are based to look out for as well as where to find more information.  As it now has grown so much, the best way to see everything you want to see is get hold of the LDF guide, which you can also access online here.  This will give you all the information you need to make the most of your visits.  You can also plan your itinerary. Here we will provide you with some information on events (great or small) with links to where you can find further details if you are interested.

Background to the London Design Festival

How does it work and what is the best way to see the venues and work that you are interested in.

As there is so much to see, we have organised the information through the links below.

Main venues
– The V&A
– 100% Design
– Tent
– Design Junction
– Designersblock

Design Districts

This year there will be 4 design districts.  Given the size of London they make it easier to visit places and ensure that you see as much as possible within the timescale. Each one has its own late night opening. In addition the London Design Festival guide also lists studios in other locations, such as South, West and Central. Although not part of the design districts, many venues have also evening openings.
Shoreditch and Clerkenwell – Late night opening Tues 18th September

Covent Garden & FitzroviaLate night opening Wed 19th September

Brompton – Late night opening Thursday 20th September
