London, United Kingdom, 2018-08-13 -

designjunction, now in its eighth year, returns this September (20 – 23) as part of the annual London Design Festival (15 – 23 September). Moving to an exciting new location, the critically-acclaimed design show will transport to the South Bank, the city’s most iconic cultural and creative hub, and deliver a specially curated programme of exhibitions, installations, retail experiences, talks and workshops. 


designjunction will present a stellar line-up of UK and international brands – both established and emerging – showcased across three key venues including the Doon Street site (furniture, lighting and retail), Riverside Walkway (outdoor installations) and Oxo Tower Wharf (exhibitions and experiential events), all of which are owned and managed by Coin Street Community Builders (CSCB).  


DOON STREET

 

The Doon Street site will feature the best in contemporary furniture as well as accessories and materials from leading international design brands alongside a selection of emerging designers. It will also house temporary pop-up shops offering a vast array of products from fashion accessories, homeware pieces, textiles and stationery attracting both retail buyers and design-savvy consumers. The two-floor purpose built super-structure will be the largest and most ambitious build designjunction has ever undertaken.

 

DOON STREET – TRADE BRANDS

 

New exhibitor Berlin-based, Bauhaus-inspired design studio New Tendency will present its ‘Truth to Materials’ campaign with a selection of new products including the December side table, Apex shelf and a fresh update to its signature Masa table system. 


Also new to the show this year, Broste Copenhagen will bring its Danish design heritage and craftsmanship expertise to London with the new modular Lake sofa, its core collection of upholstered furniture and extensive range of home accessories including a new series of ceramics. 


New lifestyle brand, Northern will be unveiled at designjunction with several new launches including the Shelter desk, Oasis planter and Case cushion. Born out of Northern Lighting, Northern has now extended its trademark style to furniture pieces and interior accessories bringing fresh vision and Nordic spirit to its new collections. 


Leading bathroom brand VitrA will present its new Plural collection conceived by Milan-based American designer Terri Pecora. Inspired by the heritage of communal bathing spaces and rituals, the range introduces the bathroom as a social hub and informal living environment where people meet and reconnect with themselves and

Long-established Swedish company Lammhults will present two new collaborations. Designed by Gunilla Allard, the Carousel conference chair draws inspiration from the 60s, while Anya Sebton’s playful S18 table pays homage to the brand’s history and the iconic S70 collection.

The London-based designer and manufacturer will showcase some of its classics such as the Canteen utility chair and Sled drawer units along with new collaborations.

The Victoria lighting collection will complement Bethan Gray’s bespoke bar designed in collaboration with whisky experts The Glenlivet.
