Zetteler Clients at London Design Festival 2017

97 designers, 6 exhibitions, 1 city. And that’s just Zetteler clients.

Hurrah, London Design Festival is almost upon us! The 15th iteration of the Festival kicks off on 16 September and, with over 450 design-related projects and events taking place across London, it’s one of the biggest and most varied celebrations of international design that the world has to offer. That means a ginormous helping of creativity; plenty of parties, discoveries and friendly faces; not to mention enough projects, products and installations to fuel our design gluttony for a good while.

And so, while everyone else has been jetting off of their summer holidays, for the last few months Zetteler and its clients have been busy applying the finishing touches to a mighty array of projects being unveiled at this year’s LDF. Dotted all over the city, the exhibitions include a collaboration between social initiative Restoration Station and designer Yinka Ilori; Villa Walala, a squishy, brightly coloured LDF Landmark Project by Camille Walala; Water, a multidisciplinary exhibition in Peckham’s Bussey Building; and not one, not two but THREE London Design Fair exhibitions.

Diaries at the ready, here’s the go-to list of Zetteler clients taking part in LDF; what they’re up to and where you can find them.

Restoration Station x Yinka Ilori

What?
This London Design Festival marks a collaboration between non-profit social enterprise Restoration Station and designer Yinka Ilori. Shoreditch-based Restoration Station runs workshops for people in recovery from addiction, teaching them skills in woodwork and furniture restoration. Its collaboration with Ilori will see the designer, a specialist in upcycling, work with the programme’s participants to restore pieces of furniture in line with his signature aesthetic. The resulting collection will be sold in Restoration Station’s shop throughout the festival. Expect bold stripes, Nigerian prints and lashings of colour!

Restoration Station x Yinka Ilori

What? 
2017 sees the Netherlands added to London Design Fair’s roster of country pavilions for the first time in the fair’s history. Taking place in the centenary year of De Stijl – the Dutch-instigated abstract design movement that left a lasting legacy on global art, architecture and design – the exhibition explores the evolution of Dutch design thinking since the heyday of Mondrian, as expressed through interior products, artworks, fashion design and installations. Dutch Stuff will showcase over 65 Dutch designers and will occupy the fair’s new gallery at the top of the Old Truman Brewery, transforming a 600sqm industrial space into an immersive and atmospheric showcase of modern Dutch design.

What? 
Making its debut at for London Design Fair 2017, Material of the Year is a new annual showcase created to celebrate and explore the materials with the biggest impact on global design today. For the inaugural edition in September, the fair’s team have chosen to demonstrate the chameleonic versatility of Jesmonite®  with a site-specific installation by experiment-driven studio PRIN London. Founder Ariane Prin has been working with Jesmonite since 2013, combining it with metallic dust to create unique, evolving surface textures and colours for the vessels of her RUST collection. Now, she’s applying the technique to the creation of Jesmonite tiles, shaped in tribute to the London brick, which will form a large-scale architectural artwork – one of the centrepieces of this year’s London Design Fair and a striking example of Jesmonite’s peerless adaptability as a structural and aesthetic material. The installation will be supported by an exhibition of other designers working in Jesmonite, including surface designer Katie Gillies and Maison & Objet 2017 Rising Talent Zuza Mengham.

Material of the Year 2017

What?
For the second year of its Guest Country initiative (following the This is India show in 2016), London Design Fair presents a coast-to-coast overview of contemporary American design today, with a special exhibition showcasing the work of 13 emerging and established US talents. Curated by Jill Singer and Monica Khemsurov, founders of Stateside web magazine Sight Unseen and the brains behind the roving Sight Unseen OFFSITE design fairs, the Assembly pavilion presents a hand-picked selection of independent studios and rare, luxury and innovative objects spanning numerous design disciplines. With no other exhibition during London Design Festival offering such a wide-ranging spectrum of American design, Assembly provides a unique opportunity to uncover the breadth of US design talent, and catch a glimpse of the concepts, materials and thinking currently shaping the country’s contemporary creative scene.

Tucked behind Liverpool Street Station, Broadgate is a picture of urban bustle. Flanked by modern office towers and thronging with shops and restaurants, this corner of the City of London is a hive of activity sculpted in gleaming glass and concrete. Into this landscape comes artist and designer Camille Walala, chosen by London Design Festival’s headline partner British Land to create this year’s Landmark Project, marking the 15th anniversary of London Design Festival. Known for her bold use of colour and pattern, the textile designer turned installation artist is determined to transform the hard textures and muted colours of Broadgate into a vibrant-hued, squishy-textured celebration of playfulness.

On Repeat: Universal Design Studio X The Office Group

What?

The power of Repetition is the theme for Universal Design Studio and The Office Group’s collaborative pavilion in Shoreditch, manifested through its architecture and a very fun programme of workshops.

Printmaker Alex Booker will be holding a one-off woodcut printing workshop which will explore the concept of repetition and movement as a deeply meditative process. Workshop participants will be taught how to use traditional Japanese tools, in accordance with the ancient techniques of woodblock printing, but will be largely free to explore their chosen patterns and shapes, or to simply respond to the grain in the wood. The workshop is free but limited to 20 pre-booked places (book online here) and a further 10 drop-ins.

FranklinTill co-founder, Caroline Till, is chairing two talks this LDF, one at Design Junction and one at Protein Studios. You can catch the first on 18 September at Protein where IKEA’s research lab is staging a week-long series of events centred on the theme Exploring Spaces of Tomorrow. The talk – which explores urban migration and how the spaces in which we live, work, play and produce will evolve – coincides with the launch of the latest issue of the studio’s magazine, Viewpoint (guests of the talk will be able to take home a complimentary copy). 

The second talk, on 22 September, couldn’t be more different to the first (and this is why we love FranklinTill!). When Design Meets Colour will see Caroline and panellists Kim Boutin, David Broner and Francesca Sarti explore the role of colour in design. Kim Boutin and David Broner are the co-founders of DVTK, a London-based studio that creates immersive and playful digital experiences that push the boundaries of modern storytelling. Francesca Sarti is the director of Arabeschi di Latte. Her work – which includes interactive installations, exhibitions and pop ups – blurs the boundaries between food and design.

Did you know that Zetteler also makes films? In addition to publicity campaigns and communications consultancy, we also provide social media strategy and film making services for clients across the creative sector.

What?
During London Design Festival, Swedish Design Moves arrives in London Design Fair’s Swedish Design Pavilion, presenting a selection of 11 designers and studios based in and around Malmö – now established as one of the country’s premier design hubs. As well as showcasing the craftsmanship, forward-thinking vision and boundary-pushing creativity in furniture, lighting, print design and interior objects, the exhibition will introduce fairgoers to traditional Swedish food and drink. Swedish Design Moves commissioned Zetteler Films to travel to Malmö and create a series of films examining the people and practice behind six of the 11 participating design studios. Over the course of five days, we ventured from city streets to rural forests, met some seriously fascinating people, and created six short designer films and a project-summary piece offering an insight into southern Sweden’s vibrant creative scene.

Reflection Room

An immersive, coloured light experience, designed by Flynn Talbot, the installation comprises 56 custom-made stretch membrane Barrisol panels. Woven within the panels are Tryka LED profiles that emit vivid orange and blue hues (inspired by moment the sun meets the water) transforming the space into a vivid reflective space of coloured light. You can catch Flynn speaking about the installation at a talk on 19 SeptemberZetteler Films has followed designer Flynn Talbot throughout the design process, from conception to installation, and the final film will chart the challenges and triumphs that come with executing such a large-scale, multi-component project.
