This is London’s first Design Biennale and is in partnership with Jaguar and Somerset House. Its theme is ‘Utopia by Design’ and there is such a wide-range of works and ideas from writers, artists, designer, architects and scientists drawn from the thirty-seven participating countries that I will in fact leave it to you to go along and discover them for yourselves.  I really urge you to do so because it is worth it as these images suggest.

The Biennale’s president Sir John Sorrell sums it up saying: “The London Design Biennale celebrates design as an international language, which everyone can understand. It does not recognise boundaries or borders. It is always seeking to make the world a better place. All over the world, nations and cities are increasingly recognising the power of design to bring social change and economic growth. They are realising that creativity, with design at its heart, can play a vital role in providing solutions to problems which affect the way people live.”
