Next Generation London Design

You can walk through, up or just chill on the stairs of this beautiful pavilion in the garden of St James. Built by GCSE students from across London, it aims to inspire younger generations to work in construction-related professions. The brief was to explore ways in which architecture and design encourage social interaction in today’s tech obsessed world. It definitely worked. Thanks to the engineers, architects and designers at Scale Rule who supported this great project!

We couldn’t help but love this blue guy. The sculpture created by David Hughes, architect, designer and leading Lego artist, is made out of conventional Lego bricks. Yes, the ones we all used to play with (and still do sometimes!). Being one of the UK’s leading artists in this field, he combines architectural experience and passion for contemporary design to create unique mosaics and installations that engage with people regardless of their age. What’s even better: the sculpture is fully glued and won’t come apart.

Reaching into the Spa Fields skyline and standing at 8 metres tall, The Beacon was hard to miss. Inspired by the Tower of Babel, we had the opportunity to climb to the viewing platform at the top which overlooks where industrial Clerkenwell meets the historical. Most importantly, The Beacon was built to celebrate the plethora of different languages spoken in the Borough of Islington. Acrylic squares provided by the Perspex Brand were each labelled with a unique colour reference name and number. Each name was translated into a different language. The number reference corresponded to the number of people recorded in recent census data listed as primarily speaking that language. As such, The Beacon represented the internationalism of the local community as well as the design industry as a whole.

Framery 'O' by Office Blueprint

In an age where offices designs are becoming more open, fostering creativity and collaboration, it can be really difficult to get the privacy you might need. As such, a recurring theme we noticed over the course of the festival was the need for privacy in office environments. We spotted various solutions but the Framery ‘O’ Phone booth stood out with its sleek design, air ventilation system, power sockets and LED lighting.

Technology is becoming increasingly personalised. As society changes, so do our habits, and having tech that can adjust accordingly is particularly attractive. We noticed that Luctra has identified exactly this with their lighting range. Their products closely replicate natural daylight and brightness settings can be set to match your body clock. Luctra themselves say that each person has their own biological rhythm, and the closer our daily routine follows this rhythm, the better we feel. The link between tech and wellbeing is clearly growing.
