The design show designjunction is now in it’s second year and judging by this year’s event it looks as though the show is going from strength to strength.
Held in the huge space of The Sorting Office in London’s West End, the 2012 designjunction brought together a quirky mix of work from new and established design brands, installations and a whole host of other interesting exhibits.
The idea behind designjunction is to ‘release’ great design from the restrictions of standard design shows to create a show that is engaging, creative yet commercially eye-catching.
The Sorting Office is the perfect venue for this event; housed in the former Post Office sorting centre which dates back to the sixties and seventies, it makes the perfect backdrop for creativity in the way the different brands are housed and presented. Many brands that showed at designjunction have been missing or have stayed away from other UK design shows, simply because they didn’t like the ‘pile ‘em high’ approach and resulting impact on their designs by bigger venues.
The Sorting Office provides enough space to do each brand justice and themed areas have been created, making it much easier and more enjoyable to take everything in.
Designjunction 2012 took place at the end of September, if you didn’t make it this year, further details of next year’s show will be on http://thedesignjunction.co.uk/
