London Design Festival celebrates and promotes London as the design capital of the world. Now in its fifteenth year, the Festival will be returning to venues and institutions across the city between the 16-24 September 2017.
Textile designer Camille Walala has created a huge inflatable sculpture, titled Villa Walala, that dominates Exchange Square in Broadgate, a dynamic hub just behind Liverpool Street Station that is owned by British Land. "I want to introduce a sense of the unexpected," she says of the Landmark Project for London Design Festival. "I think that, to turn a corner into Broadgate, and find a huge, bouncy, pink and patterned house will be hugely entertaining.
During the course of the Festival, we organise and support hundreds of unique events and opportunities across the city of London. These are intended to celebrate design in its broadest scope, from the local to the international.
