London Design Festival – Edit ’19
twentytwentyone present a defining mix of contemporary and classic designs newly launched in 2019 for the London Design Festival.
Edit ’19 combines re-issued historical designs with present-day launches, in an intriguingly eclectic yet harmonious exhibition.
Central to the exhibition’s remit is to explore the varied use of material, process and form. Materials including wood, wool, leather, paper, cast iron and enamelled steel complement a diverse range of processes celebrating both handcrafted and machine-made techniques. An inspiring collection of aesthetics will contrast and compliment.
Work by eminent twentieth-century designers Poul Cadovius, Herbert Hirche and Paul McCobb will be relaunched alongside respected contemporary counterparts including Barber & Osgerby, Pierre Charpin, Ilse Crawford, Cecilie Manz, Jasper Morrison, Raw Edges and Shane Schneck. The work of graphic artist Philippe Weisbecker will be displayed for the first time in the UK.
Each design has been selected for its inherent quality and enduring sensibilities. If not already a design classic, twentytwentyone suggest the longevity of the new designs presented.
