DesignJunctionDesignJunction returns to London for a fifth year and divides its operation in two: at The College, the former home to Central Saint Martins; and across the road at Victoria House, the Grade II listed building becoming a shopping destination hosting 35 design-led pop-up stores. Held during, and a big part of, the London Design Festival, designjunction gives visitors an exciting insight into some of the most innovative creations to emerge from the design world. The cutting edge show includes a seminar programme, large-scale installations and places to eat including a restaurant next to a life-sized pop-up Underground station made entirely from wood, created in partnership with Transport for London. Added extras include a late night shopping event with special discounts, free fizz, a design masterclass from 2 Lovely Gays, live demos and music.

 

About The College

Formerly home to Central Saint Martins and the Cochrane Theatre before the famous fashion college moved to a new home in King's Cross in 2011, The College is a large site with period Victorian halls and interconnecting rooms available to hire. The venue hosts designjunction in September 2015 when 180 cutting-edge brands temporarily set up shop and showcase their latest products. More about The College
