The event will bring hundreds of product launches, pop-up shops, bespoke installations, tempting street food and purpose-built bars to the area, presenting the latest in cutting-edge design from more than 200 international brands.
Speaking about the announcement, Sophie Cain, Design Curator at Oxo Tower Wharf, said: “We’re delighted to be collaborating with designjunction for the London Design Festival this September. Last year we were proud to host a landmark project, and we’re excited to be building on Oxo Tower Wharf’s reputation for design excellence and extending this into the wider Coin Street area.”
Now in its eighth year, designjunction has firmly established its reputation for transforming some of the most exciting and ambitious locations in London into premier design destinations, attracting 28,000 visitors in 2017. In collaboration with Coin Street Community Builders (CSCB) – the local social enterprise which owns and manages all three sites – designjunction will present an exhibition of world class design in this world class location.
“designjunction has always sought to identify architecturally stunning backdrops to present the best global design. By working with CSCB, we’re putting our brands in the centre of a thriving mixed use neighbourhood, whilst providing visitors with a unique show experience. We look forward to contributing to this exciting area.” said designjunction’s managing director, Will Sorrell.
