It’s September again and the 5th Annual London Design Festival 2007 is rapidly approaching! Launching this weekend on Saturday 15th through to Tuesday 25th September, this year looks to be more exciting than ever before, with a whole selection of sustainability-focused events.
- Tom Dixon in Trafalgar Square
- Tent London
- Casa Decor Loft
- Trash Luxe Exhibition
- DePLOY's One Garment = Multiple Outfits
The Festival explains the Eco Focus to this years agenda: "You cannot fail to have noticed that everyone has gone eco. From politics to design, the environment is at the top of everyone’s agenda.Of course eco or sustainable design is nothing new - designers have always returned to the theme of reusing and redesigning products. However, sustainability is now being embraced more widely as it soars up the political agenda, and is a major theme running through this year’s London Design Festival (15-25 September)."
I am happy to announce that I will be covering the 2-week festival for US sustainability weblog, Inhabitat.com.
