From September 21 to 24, 2022, Design London, London’s design exhibition, returns for the second time to North Greenwich
Design London, the new version of 100% Design that debuted in 2021 after skipping 2020 due to the pandemic, returns to North Greenwich with its second edition, September 21-24, 2022. The trade show, the main event of the London Design Festival, is held in Magazine London; the complex, on the banks of the Thames, is in the new design district, Greenwich Peninsula. In 2022, the fair doubles its area compared to 2021, an edition that attracted more than 12.000 visitors. The exhibition brings together an exciting array of established and emerging design brands from all over the world. They range from globally known manufacturers, such as HAY, Zeitraum, Wewood and Ago, which debut at the fair, to established exhibitors, such as Artemide, Christian Watson, Van Rossum, Bert Plantagie and Penta Light, to name a few.
