King’s Cross Design Route

King’s Cross is home to 67 acres of inspiring businesses and outstanding architecture, destination restaurants and a vibrant cultural scene. The area’s industrial past has inspired 50 new and repurposed buildings; the public spaces between them are a mix of parks, streets, squares and gardens, with Granary Square and its fountains as a heart. 

 

For the 2018 programme Creative Unions showcased work by graduating students of Central Saint Martins, Matter of Stuff presented a concept pop-up gallery designed by Raw Edges and House of Illustration housed Enid Marx: Print, Pattern and Popular Art, a landmark exhibition celebrating the mid-20th century designer. Modern Design Review and James Shaw unveiled PlasticScene, an exhibition of exciting and accomplished work by internation designers working with waste plastic. Finally, Tom Dixon hosted ELECTROANALOGUE, a gathering of digital innovations in the Coal Office, the brand’s new HQ and flagship shop. Collaborators included Bill Amberg Studio, Teenage Engineering, sound artist Yuri Suzuki, sound lab/bar Spiritland and Ege carpets.
