The London Design Festival consists of over 300 events and will take place 15 – 23 September 2012. “The Festival is both a cultural and a commercial event. The programme ranges from major international exhibitions to trade events, installations to talks and seminars, from product launches to receptions, private views and parties.”

This is a 1960’s building on New Oxford Street with space expanding over four floors, the ground floor will feature large scale installations and there will also be an opportunity to listen to seminars and debates. During the night the venue will transform in to a vibrant hub for all visitors from the London Design Festival, making this the place to party the night away with music from live DJ’s. The event will be run by Deborah spencer and art directed by Michael Sodeau.
