BDG host the Generation Design show, curated by Journalist, Helen Parton in conjunction with Kingston University, as part of the London Design Festival from 15-19 September.
This show, open daily from 10am to 6pm, celebrates and analyses the work and careers of a number of designers on the cusp of becoming household names, in disciplines from furniture, lighting to jewellery. These include Anthony Dickens, Ed Carpenter and Andre Klauser, Gitta Geschwendtner, Hannah Martin, William Warren and BDG's own creative director Colin Macgadie.
It will feature a roomset with past 'greatest hits' products from each of the designers plus more recently designed projects. Art directed by Cai and Kyn, the show will also include a large scale infographic detailing the career paths of the featured designers. It will serve as a fascinating and educational tool of how they got where they are today. It's not always a linear path, rather each designer is armed with a set of transferable skills that enables them to consult, teach, run their own business or collaborate with others: something which will interest those in the industry and the public.
