designjunction announces stellar brand line-up and new launches London 21–24 September 2017
Now in its seventh year, designjunction returns to Kings Cross this September (21-24) as part of the annual London Design Festival. The 2017 edition of the show will present more than 200 international design brands, hundreds of product launches, 70 tempting pop-up shops and bespoke installations, in addition to the schedule of lively talks and debates.
The show will take place across five key sites – all within a stone’s throw of each other, including the centrally located Granary Square (registration and installations), Cubitt House (lighting and furniture), Cubitt Park (emerging designers and materials), The Crossing (installations and partnership projects) and The Canopy (retail).
