Two venues for Designjunction

The first location is The College (12-42 Southampton Row), the home of Central Saint Martins, one of the most renowned art and design institutions in the world.

The ground floor is dedicated to the Lightjunction exhibition, with the biggest names in the decorative lighting sector on show.

Cross the street and you’ll find yourself outside Victoria House B1 (37 Southampton Row), which hosts over 50 pop-up shops: a whirlwind journey through the latest in home accessories, ceramics, design ornaments, jewellery, art prints and much more. Don’t miss Late Night Shopping (Thursday 24 between 19:00 and 21:00) and a visit to the Design Clinic (organised in collaboration with, where experts Jordan Cluroe and Russell Whitehead from the 2 Lovely Gays duo will be handing out pearls of interior design wisdom.
