(UK) – Registration has now opened for London Design Fair, which is making its return on 21 – 24 September 2023 at the iconic Truman Brewery in the heart of Shoreditch.

New for its 2023 edition and consciously curated by stylist, writer and consultant Roddy Clarke, London Design Fair in collaboration with the UK’s sustainable business community Blue Patch, will present ‘Homes with a Heart’. The area will feature a sustainably styled home that demonstrates there is no compromise on aesthetics when opting for responsibly produced and manufactured products for the home.

The first edition of London Design Fair’s new initiative Design Alumni Pavilion will showcase and support emerging talent within the design community. The exclusive selection of new talents will consist of recent graduates who have recently begun their career within their chosen practice of design. Confirmed exhibitors include Ian Burnell, lamunlamai. Craftstudio, MESEME Studio, Jenna Gillinger, Coleccion Estudio , Samia Hilal and Emily Hatton Surface Design.

The sold-out British Craft Pavilion is an exhibition of high-end crafts, exclusively designed and produced in Great Britain. This exhibition will showcase products from a spectrum of disciplines, with a spotlight on the very best in collectable design. All those exhibiting in this area are presenting work that was designed and produced in the UK with a majority of British materials. Confirmed exhibitors include James Design, Barbara Gittings, Wallpaper by Deborah Bowness, Pamela Print, Remi Dubois Design, LUX Pottery, Jason Lock Wood Turning and Jane Cairns.

London Design Fair has garnered a reputation for being a leading destination during the Festival to discover cutting-edge work and inspiration from across the world. The 2023 edition will once again feature many international pavilions including Made in Sweden (supported by the Swedish Embassy) showcasing a collection of Swedish designers exhibiting work with strong sustainable credentials, including Stamuli and Swedish Ninja. Many other international collections are to be announced over the coming months.

The LDNdesign Talks Theatre will feature an inspiring line-up of industry figures and designers – curated with the support of the design community. LDNdesign Talks Theatre offers four days of talks and workshops specifically targeted at both trade and consumer audiences. The programme will feature sessions curated by partners including Architonic, darc magazine, TrendBible, Mix Interiors, Design Council, BIID, as well as exclusive designer talks and interactive workshops.

This year London Design Fair is also launching a new feature area named the Sustainable Materials Showcase. This is an exclusive selection of materials used and repurposed in an innovative way that contributes towards a global mission to better the environment. The Sustainable Materials Showcase gives London Design Fair exhibitors the chance to show their raw material, shine a spotlight on the material’s environmental credentials, and tell a story about the production process and thought process behind their finished product. Visitors will then be led back to the exhibitors’ stand space to see the finished and more polished product.
