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.
