Kicking off today, the London Design Festival is a two-week extravaganza with a bewildering array of shows, exhibitions, seminars and general hobnobbing, big names, young talent, highly commercial offerings, as well as work which is so conceptual we’re not really sure if it’s even design. As we reported earlier this week Icon Magazine published a guide, but to make it even easier, here are CH’s select tips for the two weeks ahead. If you can't make it to London yourself, stay tuned for our onsite coverage.
