The fifth edition of the critically-acclaimed designjunction is set to raise the bar this year by taking over two new central London venues – The College, formerly home to Central Saint Martins, and the striking event space Victoria House B1, both located on Southampton Row.
At The College, designjunction will showcase more than 100 leading international cutting-edge contemporary design brands – and many product launches. Resonating with the building’s illustrious design history, designjunction will take over five impressive floors of the spectacular Lethaby building as well as other striking spaces within the campus.
Across the road Victoria House B1 will house more than 50 design-led pop up shops, nearly doubling the show’s retail offering. It will be a prime destination for some of the latest home accessories, luxury leather goods, statement jewellery, limited edition art prints, unusual stationery and much more.
“This is a really exciting time for designjunction as we expand across two new locations in central London with the opportunity to deliver an entirely original edition of our flagship London show,” said designjunction’s MD and founder, Deborah Spencer.
“The former Central Saint Martins is at the heart of London’s vibrant design scene and the perfect environment for visitors to connect and engage with design.“
Visitors can expect to encounter live workshops and flash-factories, one-off collaborations, hundreds of new product launches and inspiring installations.
designjunction2015 promises to deliver an impressive experience, making it one of central London’s leading destinations for contemporary design and an important global meeting point during the London Design Festival.
