The London Design Festival, #LDF is the brainchild of Sir John Sorrell and Ben Evans. It celebrates the city’s creativity and brings the world’s greatest masterminds, retailers and educators together for a spectacular 9 days of design festivities. The festival programme comprises of 400 events and exhibitions staged by hundreds of associate organisations across the design spectrum worldwide.
We know that for casual enthusiasts, it can be quite daunting to decide what to see – especially for those who are not very well versed in designer or brand names.
Here at Cultural-Agenda, we are big design and interior enthusiasts.
In this post, we look at one of the key events; Future Heritage and give you a sneak peek into the work of Merete Rasmussen, an artist creating compelling pieces in London.

Future Heritage made its debut last year with remarkable success. This year’s theme is the future of luxury, it will be extensively explored at Decorex through a variety of interactive installations. We’re also looking forward to Corinne Julius’ return to curating Future Heritage, she comments, “Future Heritage will showcase the works of some of the country’s most inspiring makers, designers and artists, all of whom are working at the most creative, innovative and crucially, intellectually rigorous end of their disciplines.” Decorex is the first showcase to commence this year’s LDF in it’s prestigious location at Syon Park.
We had the opportunity to get a glimpse of the Future Heritage exhibit and it is phenomenal! This year, we are championing Merete Rasmussen. Danish born but London living Rasmussen, is not to be missed this year. Her work has been previously included in public collections at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and Museum of Arts and Design, New York. Her shapes often feature soft but precise curves and sharp edges which perfectly captures the cultural vibrancy of London. A definite must see!
