South Bank move for Designjunction
September’s Designjunction exhibition is to move from its venue of Kings Cross in London to South Bank of the Thames.
The show, now in its eighth year and which attracted 28,000 visitors last year, will move to the Oxo Tower and surrounding area for 20-23 September.
The Doon Street site will house 200 international design brands and premium pop-up shops, the Riverside Walkway will showcase a series of outdoor installation projects, whilst Oxo Tower Wharf will host major brand activations, exhibitions and experiential events.
‘Designjunction has always sought to identify architecturally stunning backdrops to present the best global design. By working with Coin Street Community Builders, the local social enterprise which owns and manages Oxo Tower Wharf, the Doon Street site and the Riverside Walkway, we’re putting our brands in the centre of a thriving mixed use neighbourhood, whilst providing visitors with a unique show experience. We look forward to contributing to this exciting area,’ said Will Sorrell, Designjunction md.
‘We’re delighted to be collaborating with Designjunction for the London Design Festival this September. Last year we were proud to host a landmark project, and we’re excited to be building on Oxo Tower Wharf’s reputation for design excellence and extending this into the wider Coin Street area,’ said Sophie Cain, Oxo Tower Wharf design curator.
