Marylebone acts as design-driven hub for London Design Festival

August 2018

Marylebone, one of central London’s most celebrated areas, will serve as a hub of design-driven activities during its debut as a design district during the London Design Festival 2018, which runs from 15th to 23rd September.

Many of the well-known retailers and design shops on Marylebone High Street, Crawford Street, Chiltern Street, Wigmore Street, and others in the surrounding neighbourhood, have joined as partners of the district.

Over the course of the festival, participants will host workshops, demonstrations and launches, with the official kick-off around Marylebone’s festival day, Wednesday 19th September.

Highlights will include Colours With A Story To Tell by Little Greene at 3 New Cavendish Street W1G 8UX. Celebrating the new Green Colour Card in collaboration with the National Trust, Little Greene will host a series of Colour Consultancy workshops at its showroom in Marylebone. Revealing 31 colours, discovered during their joint research programme, each shade has a unique story to tell.  Designers and home enthusiasts alike are invited to be one of the first to see the colour palette of 31 authentic, historical greens unveiled.

It Will Never Work at RIBA London, 66 Portland Place W1B 1AD, is an exhibition that will celebrate 25 years of Urban Splash, exploring this innovative architects’ award-winning projects. Urban Splash has won over 40 RIBA Awards, from Small Projects to the Stirling Prize Shortlist and cover refurbishment and new-build on residential, leisure and commercial schemes. This touring exhibition, co-curated with RIBA North, explores the practice’s award-winning projects in the context they were created and against the specific challenges and opportunities of the day.

In celebration of the deep blue hue of the Conran Shop’s identity, furniture manufacturer Carl Hansen & Søn will champion the Danish collective's renowned designs, but with a blue twist.  Exclusive editions of Hans Wegner's CH24 Wishbone Chair with an indigo lacquer and Hiut denim seat pad, plus a wenge CH07 Shell Chair in leather will take front and centre in the store’s windows.
