Design Junction King’s Cross 2017

One of the newest additions to the London Design Week is Design Junction.  Last year we joined Houzz’s team at their pop up event (you can read more about this here), whereas this year we attended it purely as visitors.  The feel of the show is more modern/industrial, probably to a large extent thanks to being located at the newly redeveloped part of King’s Cross, which rich in its railway history.

The event makes it very easy to meet many producers in person and to learn about their design vision.  We surely were charmed by many of them and here are our favourite three.

tala is an innovative British lighting brand that marries together the latest energy-saving LED technology with aesthetic design.  Their lighting is modern and strikingly beautiful but at the same time the brand is conscious about repercussion of its products.  For this reason they champion materials and techniques that have minimal impact on the environment and strive for a transparent, carbon-neutral supply chain.

ARTIFACT LIGHTING surely has a great range of the current it lighting, that we see our Clients enquiring about the most often for their kitchens.  They specialise in industrial, factory and vintage type pendant and wall lights.  The products come in various colours and finishes, from the trendy chrome to classic glass.

Bethan Gray


Bethan Gray is the winner of 2013/14 Best British Designer title.  The innovativeness and attention to details in her work is stunning.  We were lucky to see at the exhibition the Shamsian cabinets collection, which seamlessly links art and function.  However, what caught our attention was a completely unique tea set made of real marble.  The choice of materials and precision of execution elevates such humble items to a whole new level.
