It seems like everybody's got their own anniversaries to celebrate during this landmark 10th London Design Festival.
The Fritz Hansen Store, smack dab in the centre of town, is inviting festival revelers to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Arne Jacobson's St. Catherine's College design for Oxford University and the bespoke chairs the architect and designer created for the campus.
As well as launching new variants of the chairs for LDF, the store also hopes to attract some design enthusiast with, what they are calling, 'An Educated Exhbition' featuring all sorts of wonderful design geekery, from slides, sketches and scrap books from Arne's personal collection to charming photographs and early prototypes of his furniture.
