Designed to be a truly global affair, London Design Fair 2018 will feature the strongest presence of international exhibitors to date- including 8 designers selected by the Dubai Design District.
Held at the Old Truman Brewery 20-23 September, twelve country pavilions and one very special guest country—Japan—will exhibit an impressive array of products, alongside a smart international line-up of independent designers and brands.
Located in Shoreditch, the creative heart of London, the fair is a four-day industry event that brings together 550 exhibitors from 36 countries, including: independent designers, established brands, international country pavilions, features and exhibitions.
Each year, over 28,000 influential retail buyers, producers, architects, designers, interior designers, press and design-savvy public, will attend to see the very latest in furniture, lighting, textiles, materials and conceptual installations, from all around the world.
The year’s edition also welcomes the return of Envisions with the exhibition ‘Wood in Progress’ and the ‘Material of the Year: Plastic’ exhibition. These two feature exhibitions aim to provoke audiences, sparking conversation and encouraging new ways of thinking about design at the present time.
