For the first time Kent & London opens their doors during London Design Festival, 15-23 September 2018. Visitors are invited to explore high quality furniture and kitchens alongside homewares and material samples in their Shoreditch showroom.
As part of the Shoreditch Design Triangle and throughout the duration of the Festival, Kent & London hosts a unique design challenge titled #WellMadeLDF18. Both professionals and design savvy public are invited to book a session to create their own piece of furniture using selected materials within the showroom. They will see their ideas come to life through a live design consultation with Kent & London partners Luke Ellis (Creative Director) and George Couyas (Interior Designer).
#WellMadeLDF18 aims to engage with people from all backgrounds and skill level, inspiring creativity and providing an insight into the design process. Kent & London will use their specialism of designing and making custom-made furniture to digitally sketch each design. During each session the design development will be projected for showroom visitors to see.
Each concept will be posed to Instagram for a public vote using the hashtag #WellMadeLDF18 and a shortlist will be judged by a panel of industry experts. The winning design will be refined and produced by Kent & London and given to the winner.
There will be 30 free design consultations available. Sessions will be bookable via kentandlondon.co.uk from the end of June.
