Daniel Gava, Board Advisor to the Design Industry says, “I can’t wait for the London Design Fair to return to being the protagonist of the London design scene as it represents one of the key events that showcases the best of contemporary design, the result of an accurate international selection by its organisers.” Known as London’s international design destination due to its unique mix of worldwide designers, brands, and exhibitors (67% of exhibitors were from overseas in 2019), the fair will be a key event for design professionals, collectors, and enthusiasts during London Design Festival 2023.
