designjunction at Victoria House WC1

London Design Festival 2015 is in full swing and as a result there are a ton of design events going on across the capital. I went along to the preview of designjunction this evening.


This big annual design event has moved venues this year and now occupies two major spaces in Southampton Row WC1. The College venue is presenting all the major names of design whereas in the Victoria House venue designjunction has set up an eclectic marketplace of smaller designer-makers. This is the part of designjunction I have chosen to focus on in this photo review because there were so many interesting and unusual products on show. So here’s my photo review of the designer-makers that caught my eye in this year’s designjunction show. This is a LDF2015 event that is well worth the visit.

Amazing jewel-coloured cushions from Vintage Cushions

Lovely quality tote bags from Handmade Alliance, made by serving and exprisoners from London Prisons.

Great designs for kitchen and homeware ceramics from LAHLA

Love these foil blocked greetings cards from Ola Studio

Mugs, prints and cards of bunnies trampolining, bunnies skiing etc. from HAM
