designjunction is renowned for its unparalleled mix of established brands and newer, cutting-edge labels. This week we celebrate six of our heritage-rich brands who join the 2017 line-up. Often pioneering and always innovative, we’re proud to play home to some of the world’s most influential and iconic names who remain at the cutting-edge of design

Established in 1940, Marset, who are internationally recognised for their contemporary, innovative and clever lighting, join the lightjunction line-up.

From a Danish upholstery workshop to a truly international brand, Fredericia have been producing the modern originals of tomorrow for more than 100 years.

Celebrating 50 years, LSA was born in the 60s, when the founders presented Terence Conran with their brightly coloured enamelware from Poland.

Manually bending wood since 1861, TON combine their unique craftsmanship with contemporary designs, which they still produce in their original workshop.

Isokon Plus was founded in the 1930s as part of a vision for modern living. The brand still produces the original product range as well as contemporary designs.

Founded in 1965, OMK produced furniture sold through Habitat in the 60s and 70s. OMK make their return to the retail and contract markets at #djKX.

DJ: What motivates you?
EB: I've been fired from every job I ever had, even my first paper round - so I've always been motivated by the idea that I'm the one who's in control of what I do.

As part of our #wheredesignmeets campaign, we get to know the people behind the brand with our weekly Q&A blog posts. This week we interviewed Elliot Brook and Dan Ziglam, founders of Deadgood. Click here to read the full article. http://thedesignjunction.co.uk/designjunction-x-deadgood.
