It’s September again, which means one thing in the design world – London Design Festival 2007. The 5th annual festival is rapidly approaching, launching this weekend on Saturday 15th and running through Tuesday 25th September. This year looks to be more exciting than ever before, with a whole selection of sustainability-focused events. We’ll be on site to bring you the best and the greenest designs.
From the prestigious 100%Design, to Designersblock, [re]design and Tent London, countless events this year will be focused on green design: Casa Decor Loft, Trash Luxe Exhibition at Liberty, DePLOY’s One Garment = Multiple Outfits, Organicks and Eco-Labs talk on The Greening of Design are some of the new green events this year.
From the featival’s own press release:
“You cannot fail to have noticed that everyone has gone eco. From politics to design, the environment is at the top of everyone’s agenda.Of course eco or sustainable design is nothing new – designers have always returned to the theme of reusing and redesigning products. However, sustainability is now being embraced more widely as it soars up the political agenda, and is a major theme running through this year’s London Design Festival (15-25 September).”
Inhabitat will be covering the 2-week events, with London correspondant Kate Andrews scouring the shows and reporting back with up-to-the-minute green design coverage. If you plan on attending any of the shows and want to send us your photographs and tips – we’d love to hear from you! If you would like to meet or speak to Kate further about potential work or coverage email her at KCAndr@gmail.com.
