London Design Festival returns tomorrow, with over 400 events celebrating the best of local and international design across the city.
Here are some of our preview highlights:
Alex Chinneck’s stunning ‘A Bullet From A Shooting Star’ installation is bound to be a standout piece at the Festival.
Formed from a lattice of steel, the sculpture takes the shape of an upside down electricity pylon, subverting a common sight through a sheer feat of engineering.
More historic highlights include Somerset House and the V&A Museum, which will both be hosting work by renowned designers and brands.
Destinations and Districts
