SEEN is very pleased to share the news that the London Design Festival, taking place from 17th to 25th September, will announce the winners of the annual British Land Celebration of Design on 20th September at Exchange Square, Broadgate.

Alongside London Fashion Week, the Frieze Art Fair and the London Film Festival, the London Design Festival is a key constituent of London’s Autumn creative season. Established in 2003, its role is to celebrate and promote London as the world’s design capital and gateway to the International design community.

The London Design Medal

This year, for the second time, London-based property investment company British Land will be partnering with the Festival as Event Supporter for the British Land Celebration of Design, which will recognise four different designers, each renowned in their own fields, with support from Panerai, Airbnb, Johnson Tiles and Swarovski.

The London Design will showcase work by the winners of the British Land Celebration of Design within a specially built pavilion in Exchange Square at Broadgate (part of the Shoreditch Design Triangle District) from 20th to 25th September. This will feature photography, furniture, installations and lighting that illustrate the breadth and achievement of each winner’s work and why the judges chose them. To mark the ten-year anniversary of the Medal, there will also be an exhibition of retrospective winners. Designers and architects such as the late Dame Zaha Hadid, Marc Newson, Thomas Heatherwick and Peter Saville have been among the winners of the highly renowned London Design Medal, while in recent years other categories have been added to recognise the achievements of emerging talent, innovators and entrepreneurs in the design arena.

MO-GA: Perfectly Imperfect

As the Sun shines on Earth, so MO-GA’s gender-fluid designs grace the bodies of everyone, rejoicing in ambiguity. Multiple sleeves and feathers recall the animal kingdom in all its glorious diversity; it’s a new aesthetic.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
