Five Style Picks From This Year’s DesignJunction

The annual, leading exhibition for contemporary interior design and culture, designjunction, arrived in London on the last weekend of September as part of London Design Festival.

Here are Beyond’s five style picks from this year’s exhibition.

1) Allermuir

We love the pastel, powdered palette in soft fabric finishes, with a pop of bright coral and statement black contrasting details.
The Baudot, pictured in both powder blue and neutral, is a beautiful example of form meets function. Not only does the macaron shape and colour make a fun, distinct visual impact, the Baudot can also be used as an acoustic solution to noisy areas as it is upholstered in acoustically tested fabric. We’re a fan of anything with additional acoustic properties as it can dramatically improve an environment.

2) Kirkby Design

Graphic, yet refined - this gridded utopia brings a basic graphic design pattern into a modern contrasting style. Timeless monochrome brings a simple palette, yet striking contrast in this contemporary visual. Kirkby also had a fantastic 3D Quilted velvet on display; designed for upholstery it would make any piece of furniture into a beautiful statement.


3) Foldability

Foldability are a London based design studio that create products, set design and bespoke interiors inspired by geometry and origami.
The amazing textured surface and light as shown at DesignJunction are made by hand crafted pleats and origami folding and has a soft and tactile quality. The addition of the blue ombre to the wall piece gives an extra depth and the internal lamp to the light shade means the many folded layers are highlighted.


4) Vic Lee

This elaborate hand illustrated mural gives ‘free hand’ a new meaning. Mural maker Vic Lee brought his unique style of typographic illustration to Granary Square, drawing on the historical influences of the location. Freestyled over the 4 days of the show, passers-by could watch the mural grow (and have a lovely chat with Vic!).

5) Blackbody

Made in France with specialist OLED, or Organic Light-Emitting Diode technology. OLED revolutionises the experience and design of lighting; providing a durable, yet feather light, light source. Bringing visionary innovation to use the full potential of light.
Creating the illusion of floating lights and glitter effect, this design brings a magical experience; brightening and illuminating any space. C’est magnifique !
