designjunction is at The Sorting Office (21-23 New Oxford Street, WC1A 1AP London) – the project which last year attracted more than 17,000 visitors, will showcase the very best in furniture, lighting and product design from around the world, presenting an edited selection of leading global brands and emerging enterprises. designjunction showcases design against a stunning industrial backdrop, striking a balance between creative and commercial, while offering a much-needed alternative to the traditional trade show. www.thedesignjunction.co.uk
This year, designjunction returns to the centrally-located 1960s Postal Sorting Office, where a powerful line-up of renowned international brands, smaller cutting-edge labels, pop-up shops, large-scale installations, eateries, flash factories, seminars and screenings will be presented across three floors of the impressive 120,000 sq ft venue.
In 2012, designjunction featured more than 100 world-class international brands. The five- day exhibition was critically acclaimed, attracting 17,000 trade and consumer visitors. designjunction is now widely recognised as the leading destination for international design during the London Design Festival. designjunction now takes place in other global destinations including Milan and New York. www.thedesignjunction.co.uk
The Sorting Office, a former 1960s building on New Oxford Street, usually plays host to high-profile fashion shows, art exhibitions, and music events, but will now provide the perfect backdrop for a spectacular design event. With an impressive 120,000 sq. ft. of space spread over four floors, it’s the largest non-purpose built event space participating in the Festival and is easily accessible from all parts of the city.
