DE­SIGN FRON­TIERS, LON­DON

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - The Trends -

Part of Lon­don De­sign Fes­ti­val, De­sign Fron­tiers will launch at the spec­tac­u­lar Pal­la­dian Som­er­set House ( 4), where 30 in­ter­na­tion­ally revered de­sign­ers will each col­lab­o­rate with – and be funded by – ma­jor brands to pro­duce ex­hibits. The di­rec­tor and cu­ra­tor of the project, Dr Christo­pher Turner, says that its aim is to ex­plore the in­ter­sec­tion be­tween cre­ativ­ity and com­merce. Among the con­firmed part­ner­ships so far are Dutch de­signer Tord Boon­tje with crystal ex­perts Swarovski and Bri­tish in­dus­trial de­signer Ben­jamin Hu­bert with Lon­don­based fur­ni­ture brand Aller­muir (18–24 Septem­ber; som­er­set­house.org.uk).
