London Design Festival 2019: Odds and Ends


27 September 2019

There is no unifying theme for this fourth and final episode of Disegno's London Design Festival 2019 podcast.

Instead, the team discusses three projects which have caught its attention during the week, but which do not readily fit into previously discussed themes. Covered in Episode 4: Odds and Ends are Disco Carbonara, an installation by Martino Gamper at Coal Drops Yard; Masters of Disguise, a collection of masks commissioned by Seeds gallery; and Lines, Form, Surface, an open studio event organised by Mentsen.

Odds and Ends is the fourth and final instalment in Disegno’s LDF podcast series, which sees the journal’s editorial team podcasting from around the city as they analyse the festival’s various installations, exhibitions and events.

The episode – as well as the the first three episodes – Design and Public Archives, Reuse and Reclamation, and Design and Research – are available to download here. All of Disegno’s podcasts are also available from iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, or wherever else you get your podcasts.
