Crossovers: Farg & Blanche 

This September 2019, the London Design Fair promises to blur cultural boundaries with an inspirational, hand-picked line-up of superlative contemporary design…

Come September and design enthusiasts across the globe jet set to London for the Mecca of Design that the city transforms into. Apart from the London Design Festival, the Fair is the other highly creative exposition of original, innovative and aesthetic design.  

Here is an update on the ‘big five’ that one can watch out for at the Fair:

Crossovers: International design collaboration Adorno will present Crossovers, a showcase of dynamic works selected by ten curators from ten countries, in what is billed as ‘a cross-cultural collectible design journey’. It celebrates those global designers and communities around the world fighting to keep local design and craft alive.

British Craft Pavilion is now International Craft Pavilion:  Established just three years ago, the British Craft Pavilion has become the must-see exhibit for high-end craft during the London Design Festival.  Renamed as the International Craft Pavilion in 2019, it responds to a call for the greater global representation of craft.

All-in-all, the Fair will, in yet another unique presentation, reinstate that design is universal, exciting and almost always being revitalised and reinvented. Whilst we acknowledge the roots of our inspirations, we also tend to realise that we are constantly in a flux, working at the intersection of design, art and craft - ever evolving and seeking novel ways of presenting our creations. 

Dates: 19–22 September 2019
Venue: Old Truman Brewery, Shoreditch, London E1 6QR
