From September 16th to 24th, London Design Festival takes over the city to display the work of thousands of international designers and artists. Featured exhibitions tackled heavy topics such as city life and sustainability, showcasing London as an innovative, future-thinking city with design at its core.
London Design Festival provides many opportunities for major retailers and brands across industries to get involved. One of the most talked-about landmark projects, Urban Cabin, investigates the future of urban habitats with its micro-house. Created by MINI LIVING, an offshoot of the car brand’s design practice, the installation explores a world where homes become a shared resource in a hyper-urbanized landscape. The compact space also includes a micro-library where people can exchange books, following the inevitable closures of public libraries in the future due to costs.
