Tom Dixon: London Design Festival @ The Dock

Lovely thing about living where things happen around you; all you have to do is be curious enough to discover them.

Today I stumbled across the Tom Dixon curated space at The Dock in North Kensington, with indoor and outdoor installations packed full of innovative and quirky design work; showcasing international as well as fresh British design talent.

The Dock as it's currently known was formerly the home of Virgin Records and Sony BMG, now converted into a stylish and slick looking design hub, set in an industrial Victorian waterside building, straddling the Grand Union Canal and at the top of Portobello; one of the trendiest areas in London.

The Dock, as it's currently known was formerly the home of Virgin Records and Sony BMG, now converted into a stylish and slick looking design hub, set in an industrial Victorian waterside building, straddling the Grand Union Canal and at the top of Portobello; one of the trendiest areas in London.

As I walked around there were examples of design genius everywhere; from Tap-Coat racks, Lamp shades made from tea bags, to Brooms with horse heads on the end. I did mean to take more pictures but here are just a few of the pieces that I found quite inspirational:
















I promise if I get a chance later this week I will grab a few more!

Anywho, the London Design Festival has plenty going on all over London so be sure to check out The London Design festival website for other events taking place, running until the 27th of September.
