designjunction will return to the King’s Cross site during this year's London Design Festival, from 19th–22nd September.
Now in its ninth year, designjunction has proven itself to be one of the festival's most anticipated exhibitions, attracting over 27,000 visitors across five days in 2018. This year, designjunction will present a mix of over 200 furniture, lighting, accessory and technology brands alongside pop-up shops, installations, temporary structures and major brand activations.
Over the last 20 years, King’s Cross has undergone one of the largest redevelopments in central London. The vision for London’s newest creative neighbourhood was completed at the end of 2018 with the opening of over 50 stores in Coal Drops Yard – the Heatherwick Studio-designed shopping and restaurant district. The 67-acre King’s Cross estate is now home to some of the world’s most forward-thinking businesses and a community of established and emerging brands.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be returning to this vibrant, connected part of London, and to once again be working closely with King’s Cross. Coal Drops Yard has opened since we were last at this location, so there’s a whole new experience we can offer our visitors. This is an incredibly exciting year for designjunction and our return gives us the opportunity to continue working with the best designers in the industry to create fantastic installations,” commented designjunction’s director, Mark Gordon.
