Our 50+ Favorite Finds From the 2017 London Design Festival

We traveled to last week’s 2017 London Design Festival because, for the first time ever, we were actually participating in it — come back tomorrow for a full run-down of our Assembly exhibition at the London Design Fair, where we invited 12 of our favorite studios to share their work in the show’s American pavilion. But we still managed to sneak away from the fair long enough to survey the goings-on city-wide, from the Kvadrat installation we featured yesterday to a cluster of exhibitions in the Brompton Design District to a solo show at the Aram Gallery. Here are the more than 50 finds we managed to gather on our four-day romp around town.
