thedesignvlog.com’s final vlog of The London Design Festival 2010
October 25th, 2010
Emma Elizabeth visits 100% Design, the original platform of the London Design Festival where she meets Nick Fraser and his unique take on pipes and bolts, and has her design credentials tested by The Decorator’s, Design Collective (no surprises here!). A quick tube ride to TENT and a chat to Tim from Venice and Napier about his celebration of the history of design fused into his extraordinary designs.
And finally over at The Oxo Building, Emma Elizabeth takes in the whole precinct of exhibitions that make up this years Designers Block, finishing the exhibition up in Yoo-kyung Shin’s bed!

“I’m interested in the invisibility of the design scripts that are hidden within objects we use every day that channel certain stereotypes,” says Central St Martins course leader Betti Marenko. Looking around there are plenty of design objects embedded with gender stereotypes – from the ubiquitous fail of Bic for Her pens to Nika Zupanc’s “feminine” gold chair for Moooi.
