Gallery: ANNOUNCING: London Design Festival 2008

 

We can hardly believe it is September once again, which can only mean one thing for the design calendar! That’s right, The London Design Festival 2008 is set to kick off on Saturday the 13th and will run until Tuesday the 23rd of September.

    The kind folks at B3 replied and explained how their setup was not going to waste.
    Here is a copy of what Emma at B3 wrote:

    I am glad to inform you that it is only a rumour – we are of course not going to throw away any of the boxes. The left over boxes we donated to Goldsmiths students who were building an installation in a 24 hour Design and Make in Deptford. Someone unfortunately drove through our arches, destroying them, and these boxes we have recycled. We have had some people interested in exhibiting the installation at other venues, but if this does not work out then the rest will all also be recycled. When thinking about the materials we could use for our café, recyclability was one of the major factors in the deciding process, as we are all too aware of the current environmental concerns.

    This said i apologize for spreading a rumor. I’ll be more careful next time around

    about sustainability:
    Cardboard Cafe by B3 designers is said to be dismantled and wasted after show if we believe what core77 said:

    I expressed my concerns to B3 and am waiting for their reply on the matter.
