London Design Festival: Kings Cross Design DistrictFor the first time, King's Cross becomes a design district at the London Design Festival with exhibitions and activities centred on Coal Drops Yard. As well as special exhibitions, events, workshops and performances, Coal Drops Yard hosts a commissioned landmark project by Martino Gamper, a playful installation which mimics the exterior of a disco facade. The temporary gateway is inspired by a Potemkin village in the Italian Alps and creates a striking foil to the old industrial brickwork buildings and Heatherwick Studio's curvaceous architecture. If you're in the area to visit major design fair, designjunction, allow time to visit shops and businesses putting on special events. These include STORE Store, Tom Dixon, Granby Workshop, Maya Magal, Tracey Neuls shoes as well as Wolf & Badger clothing and lifestyle store. Fashion designer Roksanda Ilincic has teamed up with Gasholders, a new development of high end apartments, to present her first interiors project inside a penthouse suite while a graduate exhibition at Central Saint Martins showcases projects themed around more sustainable futures.

 

About Coal Drops Yard

Originally built in the 1850s to facilitate the distribution of coal from the north-east and Yorkshire to London, Coal Drops Yard is reinvented in 2018 as a fashionable shopping district in King's Cross with over 50 stores, cafes and restaurants. More about Coal Drops Yard
