Brompton Design District




Late night: Thursday

The Brompton Design District programme had its biggest dedicated space yet this year, taking over three, terraced, four-storey buildings on Cromwell Place.  Visitors encountered Other Stories - alternative perspectives on design, a spotlight on the radical thinking behind some of today’s design practices and projects.  


Building on Brompton’s reputation for showcasing experimental design, Brompton’s curator Jane Withers, illuminated groundbreaking practices whose work supported change and social responsibility, by creating new systems to cope with contemporary challenges.  Visionary economists, activist groups and social enterprises appeared from Prague to Arnhem, from Tel Aviv to London.  All had unexpected stories to tell about the changes that design can make. 

Visitors to the District were also be able to visit pop-up installations by inspirational designers and makers responding to the alternative perspectives theme, as well as catching up on the latest trends from Brompton’s leading design retailers.


Brompton Design District

The Brompton Design District is a partnership between leading international brands, much loved independent retailers, neighbourhood restaurants and cultural institutions.

These businesses joined forces in 2007 with a view to revitalising the heritage of the area as a place where people come together to share, enjoy and learn about design in its broadest sense; design, culture, fashion and food.

With its world class museums, design showrooms and restaurants, Brompton is an all year round destination that offers something for all the family: a day out that will leave you culturally and physically sated.
