Event description
This September, Paddington Central will be celebrating its second year as an official Design Route for London Design Festival.

About this Event

Paddington Central, for the second year running, becomes an official Design Route, with a programme celebrating design across architecture, interiors, furniture and lighting. Newly opened Storey Club in Paddington Central is the Design Route’s central hub, hosting a curated programme of talks and debates focusing on how design can impact our everyday lives as well as the environments in which we live and work.

The Design Route will present the works of globally recognised design practices, including Snøhetta and Jason Bruges Studio, as well as emerging talent such as Adam Nathaniel Furman and Tangent Studio.

Highlights

ADAM NATHANIEL FURMAN is bringing his signature vibrancy to Paddington Central with a colourful pyramid and large canal-side breakout area complete with deck chairs in his custom graphics.

JASON BRUGES STUDIO will present its innovative lighting installation Icosahedral Sky which mimics the external environment to transform the space, commissioned by British Land for 2 Kingdom Street.

At its first major solo exhibition, TANGENT showcases its full spectrum of lighting products and sculptures within a canal side exhibit.

The SNØHETTA BOOK PAVILION will come alive with a curated library, inviting passers-by to relax and loose themselves in a rich selection of design titles.

Newly opened STOREY CLUB in Paddington Central will become the Design Route’s central hub, hosting all talks.
