Paddington Central Design Route

Paddington Central, for the second year running, became an official Design Route, with a programme celebrating design across architecture, interiors, furniture and lighting. Newly opened Storey Club in Paddington Central was the Design Route’s central hub, hosting a curated programme of talks and debates focusing on how design can impact our everyday lives as well as the environments in which we live and work. 

The Design Route presented the works of globally recognised design practices, including Snøhetta and Jason Bruges Studio, as well as emerging talent such as Adam Nathaniel Furman and Tangent Studio.  

ROUTE HIGHLIGHTS

ADAM NATHANIEL FURMAN brought his signature vibrancy to Paddington Central with a colourful pyramid and large canal-side breakout area complete with deck chairs in his custom graphics.

JASON BRUGES STUDIO presented its innovative lighting installation Icosahedral Sky which mimiced the external environment to transform the space, commissioned by British Land for 2 Kingdom Street.

At its first major solo exhibition, TANGENT showcased its full spectrum of lighting products and sculptures within a canal side exhibit. 

Launched at last year’s festival, SNØHETTA BOOK PAVILION came alive in 2019 with a curated selection of publications by Phaidon and Wallpaper*.

The PADDINGTON CENTRAL DESIGN NIGHT celebrated design, architecture and culture, transforming the Grand Union Canal with live music and exhibitions.
