For the second year, the voluminous industrial 1960s Postal Sorting Office in Holborn is the backdrop for designjunction, a design show presenting an edited selection of global brands and emerging companies. For its third edition spread over three enormous floors, the show not only brings together exhibitors of furniture, lighting and accessories but also pop-up shops, large-scale installations, eateries, flash factories, seminars and screenings.
This year, the organisers are placing greater emphasis on illumination with the launch of an area dedicated to high-end decorative lighting, suitably called ‘lightjunction’. Staged in partnership with experts Cameron Peters Fine Lighting, the show brings together international lighting brands to exhibit their beautiful yet practical lighting designs.
designjunction is one of the London Design Festival's most important design show, widely known as the global meeting point for the industry. From all corners of the world, brands flock to the must-visit destination, bringing a wealth of product launches and inspiring pieces with them.
Critically acclaimed designjunction is set to present the second edition of the premier design show during the London Design Festival this September. Well known for its uncompromising selection of leading global brands and smaller cutting-edge enterprises, designjunction is at the forefront of delivering innovative, authentic design and technology. Breaking the mould of the traditional trade show environment, designjunction strikes the balance between creative and commercial, inspiring visitors from all across the globe.
