Shoreditch Design Triangle

18-26 September 2021

 

Shoreditch Design Triangle was first created in 2008 when a few local companies and designers got together to co-promote their activities during the Festival. Since then, the creative industry in the area has thrived and the Triangle has grown into a much larger district - in some years hosting up to 60 different events. Visitors can expect a blend of both experimental and formal ideas, in the guise of product launches, exhibitions, installations, workshops, talks, tours and many a culinary delight.

What are three highlights of the district for 2021?

SCP are showcasing their new furniture collection, including designs from London-based Ilse Crawford and Philippe Malouin. Lighting designer Lee Broom, who has been a stalwart of the district, will be transforming his showroom into an exhibition of his new works. Plus, Kingston University is showcasing their 2021 Graduate Show.

What makes your district and area special to London?

For the last two decades, Shoreditch has undergone a particular type of transformation, which has seen it change from a state of post-industrial dereliction into a modern mixed use inner-city environment. Where residents, creative industries, the arts, retailers, restaurateurs, party-goers and international visitors all join in. Shoreditch Design Triangle is the perfect platform to navigate the area, whether on foot or on a bike. It's a true celebration of the east end.

What inspired your district’s visual identity?

The visual identity has been created by Farrow Design every year since the district's inception. The triangle based identity, and indeed the name of the event, are inspired by the shape on a map that the cross-section of the roads Old Street, Shoreditch High Street and Great Eastern Street make.
