Crestron, the luxury interior technology specialist, has announced big plans for this spring’s London Design Week, which returns to the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour to bring design enthusiasts the latest creative trends. Based around the theme of ‘Legends’, LDW will present original collaborations between designers and tastemakers, to celebrate a new spirit of individuality to inspire excellence in design.

In-keeping with the theme of ‘Legends’, Crestron will be holding an intuitive talk with Poltrona Frau front man Tristan Forrest on Monday 5th March. Held at its stunning showroom, located on the 2nd Floor of the South Dome, the luxurious and stylish surroundings provide the perfect backdrop to discuss the future of home technology and how furniture and interior design could be influenced by lifestyle technology and how this affects the client’s expectations.

Following the discussion, guests will be treated to a ‘create your own gin cocktail’ masterclass, by specialists from renowned gin bar and restaurant No. 97. Become a ‘Legend’ in your own right by creating a masterpiece in the form of your very own signature cocktail.

Petra van Meeuwen, Media Relations Director at Crestron, comments, “This year’s theme of ‘legends’ is a great opportunity to bring together the imaginative and stylish minds of design professionals. It encapsulates design, art, fashion and technology to create collaborated, yet unique trend-driven spaces. With our exclusive talk with high-profile industry designer Poltrona Frau and a hands-on creative masterclass, we hope to encourage our guests to become their own legends.”

On  March 7, the Crestron showroom will be the perfect setting for a Women in AV Event (WAVE). In keeping with the theme of ‘Legends’, we will be celebrating International Women’s Day (March 8) by getting some ‘leGINdary’ women in the Av industry and Interior Design Community together for an afternoon of gin tasting.
