In Trafalgar Square you will find A Place Called Home where, invited by Airbnb, four designers – Jasper Morrison, Patternity, Raw-Edges and Studioilse – will give their ideas on what home means. Although appearing similar in shape from the outside the interiors will be quite diverse. (18 – 22 September, 10am – 10pm).
The V&A Museum is once again a major hub of the Festival.

One thing there is Crest by Zaha Hadid Architects and commissioned by Meliã Hotels International. It is a sculpture that will feature across the pool in the John Madejski Garden. This striking structure will reflect both the sky and the waters of the pool. (13 September – 24 September, 10am – 5.45pm daily, 10am – 10pm Fridays).

Mallett, while perhaps best known for their superb antiques, have also been champions of modern design and during the Festival will display such pieces as “Glacier” a sculptural chaise longue cast in solid glass, designed by the Australian designer, Brodie Neill for Patrick Brillet Ltd and a monumental chandelier by Bocci. (13 – 21 September, Ely House, 37 Dover Street, W1)
