Design London, the largest official destination for contemporary design at London Design Festival, returns to North Greenwich with its second edition between 21 – 24 September 2022.
Taking place in Magazine London on the banks of the River Thames, the four-day event will headline as the main attraction – among a plethora of creative features and activations – in the festival’s newest design district, Greenwich Peninsula.
Design London made its debut in 2021, attracting over 12,000 UK and international visitors. The show is set to double its floor space this year, where architects and interior designers can source cutting-edge furniture, kitchens and bathrooms, lighting and architectural fittings all under one roof. It brings together a compelling line-up of established and emerging design brands from around the world; from global manufacturers – including HAY, Moooi, Zeitraum, Wewoodand Ago – that are joining the show for the first time, to returning exhibitors such as Artemide, Thonet, Christian Watson, Van Rossum, Bert Plantagie and Penta Light to name a few.
Marlon Cera-Marle, Director of Design at Media 10, comments, “Following our inaugural launch in 2021, we’re delighted to be back in North Greenwich this September as part of the London Design Festival. We had great results in 2021 – not only being at a brand-new location, but also receiving an overwhelmingly positive response from exhibitors, partners and visitors.”
Cera-Marle adds, “The UK is one of the key countries for specification internationally, and our show is all about championing design excellence, along with originality, innovation and diversity.
“Building on last year’s success, we look to bring an even more exciting, content-rich programme to our show – which will double in size – this year. We also look forward to spearheading the launch of the new ‘Greenwich Peninsula’ design district and working with our local partners to bring the neighbourhood to life."
Alongside a multitude of product showcases, visitors to Design London 2022 will also have the opportunity to explore a curated selection of international pavilions from countries including Denmark, as well as newcomers to the event such as Korea, Portugal and Thailand. Watch this space – more exhibitors and pavilions are to be announced in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, the show welcomes the second edition of Discussions at Design London, its thought-provoking talks programme that comprises headline keynotes, trend forecasts and panel discussions with a range of high-profile industry experts, influencers and thought leaders. Brand consultant Katie Richardson returns to curate the series, which runs daily throughout the show and offers an insight into future trends while addressing the most pressing topics within design, architecture and the wider creative industries.
Design London returns to Magazine London, North Greenwich from 21 – 24 September 2022. The full programme and list of brands will be announced in due course.
