London Design Festival 2012 officially opened last week, but the multitude of events don’t really kick off until tomorrow night, when most of the exhibitions and showrooms open to the public. We’re particularly excited to visit The Tramshed at designjunction, which has been a great success ever since De Le Espada’s founding director, Luis de Oliviera, initiated it in 2010. In just two years it’s established itself as a carefully curated, yet authentic lifestyle event and has become a must-see for “a thoughtful and diverse selection of both established and emerging firms who are known for the vibrancy of capacity to innovate.”
Full disclosure, we love the designers in De Le Espada‘s line up. You might recognize Benjamin Hubert’s Coracle chair and Autoban‘s Nest from the Product Page in our most recent issue. This year Matthew Hilton will debut a new line of accessories to mark five years of his eponymous brand, Søren Rose Studio will expand their Park Avenue collection, Autoban will exhibit their most recent product, the Cloud table, and Hubert will showcase both new and recent pieces in his installation, “Construction Site.”
The Tramshed runs from September 19 – 23, 2012.
