London Design Festival celebrates and promotes London as the design capital of the world. Already in its fifteenth edition, the Festival will be returning to venues and institutions across the city between the 15-23 September 2018. A major feature of the Festival is an ambitious program of over 450 projects and events, offering Londoners and visitors to the city an opportunity to experience world-class, revolutionary, and challenging design across the capital of the country of the Queen.
Established in 2003 by Sir John Sorrell CBE and Ben Evans, London Design Festival has since earned the reputation as a key calendar event of London’s autumn creative season, alongside London Fashion Week, Frieze Art Fair and the London Film Festival, bringing the greatest thinkers, practitioners, retailers, and educators to the capital, in a citywide celebration.

London Design Biennale
Somerset House Strand | 4 – 23 September
The 2018 London Design Biennale (part of the London Design Festival) will be dedicated to the theme of Emotional States. National entries will explore how design affects every aspect of our daily lives – the way we live and how we live – and how it can also influence our very being, our emotions, and experiences.
- Princess Yachts, a British yacht maker, presents a new dazzle for their latest and most provocative project: The R-35.

- The installation by Biome Collective for Scotland will investigate whether video games can help young people to start talking about their mental health. Shpeel invites individuals to share their emotions via gaming techniques and 360-degree sound and animation. The technology then produces an avatar that reflects these feelings, giving people a communicative therapy and an alternative to words.
