Returning to London for its 15th year, the London Design Festival is bringing some of the most innovative and creative design minds across art, sculpture, and furniture design to one location. Basically, this is where the world decides what the next cool thing you must have in your living room is going to be. In the past, its been a Tom Dixon chair, which 500 were given away to whoever could grab them fastest in Trafalgar Square. This year, it could be anything from pepper mills with an interesting handle, to eggs that open into bowls for the kitchen, the sofas repurposed from military parachutes. The world is their oyster for the designers on display September 16th to the 24th, and we’re waiting to hear. Be sure to check out these highly anticipated exhibits.
