Now in its second year, designjunction has cemented its reputation for showcasing the finest selection of international design brands. This year designjunction welcomes the Tramshed into the event to create an even more powerful showcase for design in London’s largest non-purpose built event space.
Three floors, across an impressive 120,000 sq ft. space, will be devoted to leading international brands, smaller cutting-edge labels, design shops, large-scale installations, temporary restaurants, bars and cafes, working flash factories, and live entertainment.
Places and Spaces will showcase new pieces in the UK by design giants Droog, artist-makers Kyouei design, British design industrialists Plant & Moss, eco-designers Mater, re-inventors Puebco and stationery creators Anything.
Kyouei design show a collection of jewellery - where form of function takes a new journey with the re appropriation of conventional springs, clasps and clamps from their industrial and practical purpose to a more refined and crafted interpretation as jewellery.

Sustainably harvested Mango wood stained, steel legs.
Puebco - this Japanese brand takes product references from found objects and re-crafts them for a timely re-emergence. The age of these products seems unknown. The very idea of what is the ‘latest’ design is questioned through their re-interpretation.
