ADORNO LONDON 2021 – Designing Futures

In close collaboration with leading curators, Adorno invites the international audience of the London Design Festival on a design journey through eight design cultures by presenting new work, spanning the fields of collectible design and functional art, conceived by experimental thinkers and practitioners who are part of a global, contemporary discourse.

This year, Adorno brings a roster of more than seventy of the most promising designers from eight countries to London, both physically at several locations around the city, and online through immersive virtual 3D experiences.

Once again, Adorno has harnessed the best in tech to create state-of-the-art virtual exhibitions on adorno.london. We will tune in on one design community at a time during the Festival, 18 – 26 September 2021, in collaboration with international and national media partners.

Each collection, including works by up to ten defining designers working at the intersection between design, craft, and art, is curated under a specific theme that investigates what “Designing Futures” means in practice.

Squaring the circle, all pieces will be immediately available for purchase on adorno.design alongside more than 50 previous collections from around the world.

Register at adorno.london and get notified about the physical exhibitions and virtual launches.

“It is Adorno’s aim to keep each craft and design ecosystem alive and visible during these times by providing the right international exposure for the designers, makers, and curators at the center of each design scene”
