London Design Festival 2017: Just Another Chairfest

Last Friday, September 22, UK Prime Minister Theresa May described the June 2016 "Brexit" referendum as an opportunity for “imaginative and creative” solutions for the European Union. In the context of London Design Festival, the euphemism is equally coincidental and ironic. Central Saint Martins, for one, explicitly addressed Brexit—and subsequent geopolitical upheaval—in the expository text for its exhibition Creative Unions: “Creativity by necessity and inclination has to operate across borde...

London Design Festival 2017: Gallery Galore and More

As with any design week, the tentpole tradeshows and group exhibitions of London Design Festival can be a mixed bag of brands, manufacturers, collectives, independent designers, and sponsored pavilions. While the disparate exhibitors cater to different albeit overlapping audiences, the jarring juxtapositions can be chaotic if not altogether unfortunate.Thankfully, galleries offer a rather more curated experience, while student exhibitions remain as timely and relevant as ever, and LDF did not di...

Trump Revives Program Providing Local Police With Surplus Military Equipment

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump will revive a program that provides local police departments with surplus military equipment such as high-caliber weapons and grenade launchers, despite past concerns that armored vehicles and other gear were inflaming confrontations with protesters. Trump plans to sign an order undoing an Obama administration directive that limited police agencies’ access to camouflage uniforms, bullet-proof vests, riot shields, firearms, ammunition and other items. Atto...

Leonardo DiCaprio schools Donald Trump on the benefits of renewable energy

The actor and activist met with the future US leader in New York at Trump Tower, where they discussed the economic benefits of renewable energy investments, including the fact that it would add millions of jobs—one of Trump’s key campaign promises.

Leonardo DiCaprio Met With Donald Trump To Discuss Green Jobs — How Did The President-Elect Respond?

Donald Trump made it clear protecting the environment was none of his concern when he claimed global warming was a hoax perpetuated by China. But if anyone is going to get the President-elect to take climate change seriously, it's the Wolf of Wall Street! According to reports, Leonardo DiCaprio and the head of his foundation met with Trump on Wednesday to discuss how clean jobs centered on preserving the environment can actually boost the economy.

Highlights from London Design Festival 2016, From King's Cross to Kensington (and Everywhere in Between)

As with NYC's ICFF and Milan's Salone del Mobile, the tentpole events of London Design Festival are predominantly trade-facing affairs. Whereaas 100% Design caters to interior designers and architects, designjunction balances contract with the indie, up-and-comer spirit of Shoreditch. Meanwhile, the nooks and crannies of South Kensington — known as Brompton Design District — and Clerkenwell were well worth exploring, including gems from the London design galleries, showrooms, and pop-up exhibiti...

Keep Calm and Carry On: Highlights from Shoreditch and the London Design Fair 2016

Aside from the inaugural biennale at the Somerset House, the 14th edition of London Design Festival felt like business as usual. Indeed, the introductory text to the official guide to LDF2016 only makes a passing mention of the Brexit. Similarly, only one exhibition in East London explicitly addressed the results of June's referendum — an apt indication that the effects of leaving the EU remain to be seen.Among the many exhibitions and events from September 17–25, Place Your Bets solicited visit...

Tord Boontje's Futuristic Funhouse of Electro Craft at London Design Festival 2016

There was nary an Arduino in sight at Electro Craft, a dense London Design Festival exhibition in the heart of Shoreditch Design Triangle. A showcase of design at various points where arts and crafts meet technology, the jam-packed show gives a first impression of overstimulation, with nearly 30 projects — often characterized by lights, sounds, movement — into the modest gallery space.
