As outstanding events of the London Design Festival, for years now, Tent and Super Brand London have been presenting a refined selection of the most innovative ideas in the ambits of furniture, lighting and interiors from avant-garde global brands and independent designers. Particularly worthy of interest are the National Pavilions which, each with their own select showing of brands, set out to develop those individual themes which are most representative of the design trends in their regions. At this edition, the Czech Republic will be presenting Glassmania, an exhibition organized by the Prague Academy of Art, Architecture and Design to highlight the extraordinary potential of Bohemian glass. The Italian Pavilion, on the other hand, will be focused on the design and craftsmanship of Southern Italy, with a particular emphasis on Calabria, Campania, Puglia and Sicily. As Taipei looks forward to 2016 when it will be crowned World Design Capital, it presents Eataipei, a special food design event aimed at making its history, folklore, lifestyle and future urban scenarios known internationally, through the flavours and colours of its cuisine. This is followed by the pavilions of Australia, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Poland and Lithuania.
To mark this edition running from 24 to 27 September, a total number of 450 exhibitors from 29 countries will welcome 24,000 visitors to their stands and galleries in Hanbury Street, inside the Old Truman Brewery, the East London design hub, an interesting district that has become a driving force of art, design, creativity and business.
