This year at the London Design Festival
we knew we couldn't miss out on the Shoreditch Design Triangle, which was buzzing with great reviews across the city. Composed of different shops, galleries and independent studios in the Shoreditch neighborhood, this group was home to some of the best designs showcased in East London. Some of the standout green highlights that really caught out eye this year were the amazing Boskke Sky Planters
and the Norwegian Prototypes
exhibition where the design brief stipulated that each product fit had into a standard piece of 55 x 40 x 23 hand luggage - and boy, did they. Read on for more of our favorite finds!
In a collaborative installation with Boskke, Thorsten van Elten shows designer André Klauser’s Mechano Chair, inspired by industrial shelving.
Sara Wright Polmar’s Peggy consists of pegs of varying lengths and colors and wooden board. The pegs can be re-arranged in different design schemes to create a unique and multi-functional piece of furniture.
Oscar Narud’s Keel Seat looks to the Norwegian furniture tradition of simple assembly and local materials. This stool/side table is assembled by wedging two planks together, providing construction stability and easy storage when taken apart.
The All Lovely Stüff pop-up at the SCP shop and showroom.
