LDF16 was the usual eye-popping variety of installations & concepts. Our favourite wasn't a single piece, but the diverse sustainable design on display. Artists and designers from around the world showed us the art of the possible with recycled, re-used and up-cycled materials.
LDF, the London Design Festival, is back in September. And we can't wait! If you haven’t been to the Festival before, this guide will help you understand what LDF is and why we firmly believe you should make time to see it. Get ready for the landmark projects, catch art destinations that are only around for a few weeks, and discover London's Design Districts.

When you first see Alex Chinneck's Bullet From A Shooting Star imposing itself on the industrial Greenwich Peninsula landscape, the first thing that hits you is likely to be the scale and sheer audacity of this magnificent structure. But when we got closer, we found ourselves equally fascinated by the intricate details, and the many forms, textures and shapes within shapes almost hidden in the details. Is this what its creator wanted us to notice? Discover what we saw, read what he says, and judge for yourself.
LDF15 was the biggest and (in our opinion) best London Design Festival held so far, with over 400 at times amazing exhibits spread over 7 Design Districts across London. Discover our personal highlights: from space travel to cutlery, via industrial landscape, synthetic insects and imaginative jewellery!
