This year’s edition of the festival sees it take residence in Somerset house’s West Wing over ten rooms and giving free reign to ten designers to create something within the spaces. Featured projects will be technological installations, new products displays and two reading rooms, with designers taking part including Jasper Morrison, Nendo and Faye Toogood. Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec will also present the Serif, a new product for Samsung which will give a new dimension to technology for the home.
21-27 September; Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 1LA; www.somersethouse.org.uk
