London Design Festival 2019: Design and Public Archives


17 September 2019

The inaugural episode of the 2019 Disegno London Design Festival (LDF) podcast series is now available online, featuring discussion of Please Sit at Fenton House and the V&A.

Throughout LDF, Disegno's editorial team will be podcasting from around the city, offering reflection and analysis on the events, installations and exhibitions staged as part of the festival.

The first episode of the podcast is now available online here, as well as from iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, or wherever else you get your podcasts.

Taking as its theme the interaction between public archives and contemporary design installations, the first episode sees the team look at projects by Sam Jacob, Big Chief Desmond Melancon, Kengo Kuma and Non-Pavilion at the V&A, as well as Please Sit at Fenton House.
