London Design Festival returns for its 19th edition to once again transform the capital's landmarks, neighborhoods and cultural institutions with a series of outdoor installations, exhibitions and special events that will bring people together as London continues to reopen.
Since its inception in 2003, the Festival has hosted the world's leading design thinkers, practitioners and educators and has shone a spotlight on the city's creative brilliance that has helped cement London's reputation as the design capital of the world.
"London has some of the world's greatest designers living and working here, who come from all over and make this city their home," commented Sir John Sorrell CBE, London Design Festival Chairman. "Over the years, this has enabled us to develop exciting programmes which showcase both design's joyous side but also the ideas and innovations with the capacity to shape our societies. We hope that this year's Festival will not only be seen by those in London but audiences all around the world, and that we're able to demonstrate that design will be at the heart of the future."
From North to South, East to West, the Design Districts are a key component of the Festival makeup. Each District has its own unique personality that reflects the local community and enables visitors to explore events a short walking distance from each other. There will be 10 Design Districts as part of this year's Festival: Brompton Design District, Clerkenwell Design District, Islington Design District, King's Cross Design District, Mayfair Design District, Shoreditch Design Triangle, returning after its successful debut last year William Morris Design Line, and newly launched for 2021, Design District at Greenwich Peninsula, Park Royal Design District and Southwark South Design District.
