#HoxtonHotspots – London Design Festival
The London Design Festival returns to venues across the capital from 15-23 September 2018, to celebrate and promote London as the design capital of the world.
As part of the festival, we’ll be hosting an event entitled ‘Stories of Home: In Conversation’ where we set out to explore what home means to Londoners. From Deptford to Wembley these stories have been made into a book and presented as an exhibition. Join us at Hoxton Press on Tuesday 18 September for a conversation about the creative process.
Along with this event there are also some other fantastic exhibitions, installations, workshops, talks and tours on offer from the Shoreditch Design Triangle. The Shoreditch Design Triangle was established in 2008 by SCP, with the intention of joining forces with other like-minded business to cross-promote their Design Festival events. Having grown steadily, the Shoreditch Design Triangle now compromises over 60 different independent events.
Located down a small side street is the chair factory expo. It’s an enjoyable, relaxed space where you can find out about the history of the chair! Use the inspiration you get to design your own chair, with the possibility of seeing your design come to life. The chair factory is open from 22-23 September at 73 Rivington Street, Shoreditch.
A World Of Ordinary Things sets out to explore the relationship we have with the objects that we live with on a day to day basis; it reflects on how they are made, how they are used and how we perceive them. Located in the heart of Shoreditch at SCP’s headquarters on Curtain Road, the exhibition is open from 15-23 September.
Meet the makers, browse and buy from some of the UK’s top ceramic artists. A wide-ranging selection of work to suit all budgets will be on offer, from table-ware to striking one-off collector pieces. Located on the GEFFRYE Museum on Kingsland Road, this ceramic fair is not to be missed!
