London Design Biennale 2018




Taking over the entirety of Somerset House, the 2018 London Design Biennale will ask questions and explore new ideas about cities, migration, sustainability, artificial intelligence and social equality.

Visitors will enjoy engaging and interative installations, innovations, artworks and proposed design solutions - all in an immersive, inspiring and entertaining tour of the world.

In 2016, the inaugural London Design Biennale presented work by 37 countries from six continents. Installations were created by the world's leading museums and design organisations, including Copper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Musuem (USA), German Design Council, the MAK (Austria), Moscow Design Museum (Russia), Triennale Design Museum (Italy), India Design Forum, Japan Foundation, and Victoria and Albert Museum (UK).
