Designersblock is one of our favorite events because it's a great place to find plenty of quirky, innovative and bizarre new eco-friendly designs. The show is famous for setting up shop in neglected spaces as part of the London Design Festival, and this year the showroom was located in a storage facility at the South Bank. From wacky handmade machines to fantastic 3D-printed objects, click through to see our exclusive photos from the event.

BreadedEscalope studio presented their low-tech, low-energy, steam-bending machine and showed the public how it worked at this year’s bustling Designersblock event.

As 50% of the world’s computer waste ends up in four small villages in China, Kuan Ting Liao decided to draw attention to the issue by knitting all sorts of objects from found materials.

One of the weirdest and most wonderful surprises we come across at this year’s event was a non-profit arts organization called Exploring Senses that recycles old toys into bizarre new creations.
