This celebration of the new season includes new imaginative installations, more than 100 immersive experiences, bespoke pop-ups and tempting food and drink. Visitors who value genuine talent, skill and provenance can discover the latest offerings from 120 exhibitors from around the world, while on the main stage, international speakers share their knowledge at the authoritative Conversations in Design series. A new initiative is ‘Legends’, which sees connoisseurs from the worlds of design and decoration, art, fashion and architecture collaborate to transform an array of showroom windows and showcases with wit and verve.
Channelling the design world’s rising spirit of individuality and creative expression, London Design Week 2018 seeks to go beyond fleeting trends. This is an event where powerful design professionals can engage with established makers and style-seekers can delve deeper into their design passions via talks, demonstrations, workshops and discovery tours; and luxury brands can converse with emerging influencers and tastemakers.
The programme aims to be both accessible to all and sophisticated in its outlook, broadening awareness of outstanding design. A global audience of visitors and a host of international brands make this an event whose influence reaches far beyond its London base.
Claire German, Managing Director at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, says: “Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour has become known for its strong curated events. London Design Week 2018 promises a magical combination of design encounters and ways to connect with 600+ leading international brands, unseen anywhere else, all contributing to the many elements which will make this an unmissable week.”
