The Brompton Cafe by Today Bread, with furniture curated by M L XL
Brompton Design District, London Design Festival
16th - 24th September 2017
This year we built on the district’s reputation for showcasing experimental work with the theme ‘Other Stories - alternative perspectives on design’, with over 40 exhibitions across three townhouses, garages, and temporary spaces around Brompton.
The projects presented focused on the stories behind design and making, bringing together work by designers and practitioners who have in common the desire to expand the remit of design and stretch the imagination beyond product. The theme was reflected in projects that reveal the impact of engaged design and explore the non-design perspectives contributing to this process. Highlights included the work of practices and individuals supporting social development, from a holistic model for supporting small communities in Newfoundland (Fogo Island), to a collaboration that supports regeneration in Bosnia (Zanat + Ilse Crawford), and a Dutch movement that is redesigning labour to build a sense of self-worth (Social label).
