This weekend, one of the most important in the design calendar, sees London being taken over the London Design Festival. World renowned design shows spring up across the city showcasing work from a broad spectrum of design disciplines.
One of these shows, London Design Fair incorporating Tent London and Superbrands London takes up it usual post at the old Truman gallery on Brick Lane. I make an effort to visit this show each year to see first hand what is happening in the world of design. This year is no different in that regard and I am looking forward especially to see the Swedish design pavilion, the British craft pavilion and also the work of Shane Holland whom was an external examiner of mine while studying at the furniture college in Letterfrack.
What is different about attending this year is that I will be lucky enough to see a piece of my own on display at the Eporta stand. Eporta is an excellent online business to business sourcing platform for trade customers. It brings together the work of over 800 (and rising) makers in one place to form a comprehensive directory of design where interior designers, architects and buyers can find any product they may need for their projects. i am not only thrilled to be a supplier to Eporta but am very honoured to have my work showcased as an example of what is available on the site. So should you find yourself anywhere nearby at the weekend do call in to what is always an inspirational show and drop by stand 98 where the prism coffee table can be viewed.
