19 Must-See Projects From The London Design Festival

Co.Design scoured the city for the best of the best.

The city has long been a creative capital, and the exhibitions blanketing the city prove why. We visited a handful of the best installations, which ranged from Open Desk’s inquiry into the future of office furniture to Alison Brooks’s and Arup’s investigation into the potential of new architectural materials and engineering, and the first-ever London Design Biennale–an exploration of what utopian design means today.
