Designjunction is moving to London’s South Bank for its eighth year. A key destination during September’s London Design Festival, designjunction has a reputation for transforming some of the most London’s most exciting locations into design destinations. This year it will collaborate with Coin Street Community Builders (CSCB), a local social enterprise which owns and manages Oxo Tower Wharf, the Doon Street site and the Riverside Walkway, to present the exhibition.
Between September 20-23, the event will host hundreds of product launches, boutique pop-up shops, bespoke installations, street food and purpose-built bars across three key exhibition spaces; Oxo Tower Wharf, the Doon Street site and Riverside Walkway.
The Doon Street site will house 200 international design brands and pop-up shops. Organisers say this purpose built super-structure will be the largest Designjunction has ever undertaken. Riverside Walkway will showcase a series of outdoor installation projects, while Oxo Tower Wharf will host brand activations, exhibitions and experiential events.
Designjunction 2018 will showcase leading international names such as Erik Joergensen, New Tendency, Northern, Gemla, James Burleigh, Norr11, VitrA, Icons of Denmark and LSA as well as emerging designers Emma Cerasulo, Studio Anansi, Woven Form, Ystudio and Alex Orso.
“Designjunction has always sought to identify architecturally stunning backdrops to present the best global design. By working with CSCB, we’re putting our brands in the centre of a thriving mixed use neighbourhood, whilst providing visitors with a unique show experience,” says Designjunction’s managing director, Will Sorrell.
Surrounded by iconic London architecture, the South Bank attracts an estimated 25 million visitors each year.
