In this video by Dezeen, London Design Festival deputy director Max Fraser summarises the aims and key themes of this year's Global Design Forum 16-17 September 2013.
Taking place annually, The Global Design Forum is the pre-eminent thought leadership event for design bringing together key figures from across the design industry as well as those from other sectors to explore and debate the powerful and pressing issues facing design in the modern world.
The event was held at the V&A and Southbank Centre during the London Design Festival 2013 and addressed some of the most turbulent and critical areas of activity: innovation, urbanism, brand power, the character of creativity, and the realisation of the ‘Big Idea’. Over 250 delegates and 25 speakers took part, including Peter Saville, Brent Hoberman, Jamie Hayon, Ilse Crawford, Ross Lovegrove, Sir John Hegarty and Michael Young.
BE OPEN SPACE- At The Dock with Tom Dixon. A Wallpaper* Film
"Tom Dixon's west London canal-side HQ was the venue for BE OPEN's first off-schedule event at the 2012 London Design Festival. Following BE OPEN's theme of exploring the five senses and described by Dixon as a flash-market showcase of young design talent, BE OPEN SPACE consisted of eight site-specific raw-wood stands conceived by designer-engineers Pan Studio and JailMake. Each of the huts showcased one of the five senses, while their solid, practical construction made reference to pine art-transport containers and the old trade stalls of Florence's Ponte Vecchio."
