Perennially in sync with the autumnal equinox, London Design Festival is duly billed as the biggest design week this side of Milan. And just as the changing leaves offer a flourish of color, so too did many of projects on view in East London—especially large-scale installations by Camille Walala and Yinka Ilori, at Exchange Square and the CitizenM Hotel, respectively.
Meanwhile, the moniker "Shoreditch Design Triangle" suggests a bit of funky geometry, which also informed a number of projects as designers channelled and challenged the rectilinear tenets of modernism. And beyond shape, size, and postmodern palettes, we also saw some exciting experimentation with materials and process.
Here are a few of the highlights from Shoreditch:
Glint Hero is the first luminaire that can point light in any direction without moving the fixture itself.
