Themed around ‘Masters of Design’, the packed programme at London Design Week 2020 is set to examine what it takes to be the ‘best of the best’ with over 100 timetabled activities at the largest design centre in Europe. Enjoy workshops such as sewing with recycled fabric at pioneering brand Kvadrat at Home, artisan demonstrations and the launches of new collections at companies including Cole & Son, Romo and Arte. These events promise to go behind the design and provide insight into the inspirations and processes involved in creating world-class homeware, from textiles and wallcoverings to furniture and flooring.
Highlights in the ‘Conversations in Design’ series include discussions with leading creatives, such as ELLE Decoration Editor Ben Spriggs with Martin Hulbert and Jay Grierson of Martin Hulbert Design (details below*). For those keen to boost their career in interior design, pay a visit to the invaluable ‘Grow Your Business’ sessions. Then catch up on the latest furniture releases at showrooms such as Porada and Flexform. Lookout, too, for recent arrivals – the monobrand showroom for Italian outdoor furniture brand Ethimo, which specialises in beautifully crafted timber and woven pieces, and high-end Portuguese brand Frato to name two.
