Design London contemporary design fair

Design London will be devoted exclusively to contemporary design and furniture. This Fair will showcase a collection of the finest twentieth and twenty-first centuries design from around the world and as such is an exciting addition to London’s design scene.

Twenty of the world’s top design galleries have been selected to participate, demonstrating both a geographical and chronological survey of the design scene from the 1950s to today. Each gallery specializes in a specific time period, style or group of designers whether they hail from Paris, Shanghai or Italy. Works in limited editions or unique pieces range from the most renowned Post-war designers Jean ProuvĂ© and Le Corbusier to leading contemporary names such as Marc Newson and the Bouroullec Brothers as well as emerging artists such as Joris Laarman and Maarten Baas.

Design London is aimed at serious collectors, curators, directors, dealers and artists and it is hoped that it will also broaden the public’s knowledge of the ever-growing contemporary furniture market.
