London Design Festival celebrated 20th anniversary

Published on : Saturday, December 17, 2022

London Design Festival returned for its 20th anniversary from September 17-25, 2022 with a thought-provoking programme of events, exhibitions and installations. The Festival once again provided a platform for designers and creative businesses to showcase their work, and invites a global audience to discover the breadth and diversity of talent found in London and across the UK. As one of the world’s leading design events, the Festival has also served as the blueprint for design weeks and festivals globally and continues to be a key moment on the cultural calendar.



A truly democratic event, the Festival is predominantly free and audiences have increased year-on-year with the 2019 Festival reaching 1.1 million visits by 600,000 visitors, with more than one third of them from overseas, representing 75 countries. Sir John Sorrell CBE, London Design Festival Chairman, said: “We consciously founded the London Design Festival to be public spirited. Different from other design events, we not only aim to support designers by helping them showcase their work and generate business, but importantly to create an understanding and appreciation for the creative industries by as wide an audience as possible. Over the last 20 years, the Festival has had incredible depth of penetration and success in bringing people together and distilling new ideas.”



The 2022 Festival will once again shine a bold new light on the city, and make the familiar fresh through its programme of sensational, must-experience installations; museum exhibits; the Design Districts which highlight clusters of creative activity across the capital; and the Global Design Forum, the Festival’s thought leadership programme which will bring together creative leaders to exchange ideas and solutions for some of the most pressing issues of our time.



Ben Evans CBE, London Design Festival Director, said: “The design and creative sector in London and the UK has enjoyed a golden period this century. An extraordinary rush of ideas fed by a steady migration of world class talent made London the global capital it now is. The London Design Festival both benefited from and helped enable that reputation. On our 20th anniversary we want to take stock and move forward to ensure the Festival continues to support the design community, commissions and showcases new ideas, and reflects on the key issues from technology to sustainability to wellbeing so that the next 20 years are as fruitful as the past 20”.
