Setting out to test the boundaries between art and design, the London Design Festival once again emphasises the British capital’s unique status in the creative world

This year’s London Design Festival, which concluded late last month, hosted a rich mix of commissioned installations, exhibitions, product launches, private views and parties. ‘This year, our focus was more on new ideas with major commissions at the V&A, Trafalgar Square, and at Southbank Centre. However, most of the festival is made up of the 200-plus partner events, rich with new work,’ says festival director Ben Evans.

As in previous years, the event spread across the capital in concentrated are as of activity, including Brompton Design District, Covent Garden and the West End. London’s East End also swelled with festival activity across Clerkenwell, Hoxton, Shoreditch, Kingsland Road, Brick Lane and surrounding streets.

Perspective selected some of the best works on offer, demonstrating why London has become a creative capital which appeals to audiences across the globe.
