Now in its eighth year, designjunction is known for being the home of established and emerging talent and cutting edge concepts, and for being one of the most shoppable exhibitions in the whole of London Design Festival. This year, the show’s selection of stellar UK and international brands such as Caesarstone, Bontempi, LSA, Rado and Vitra will be showcased across three venues – Doon Street, Oxo Tower Wharf and Riverside Walkway.
