London Design Biennale

London Design Biennale is an international exhibition and thought leadership programme featuring world leading design innovation and creativity from countries across the globe. The event reveals the potential of design to respond radically to changing social and environmental needs, its contribution to the world economy and its power to drive change and find solutions for the benefit of all.

Launched in 2016, with successful editions in 2018 and 2021, the exhibition asks participants to present compelling ideas from a diversity of viewpoints and across a broad range of design disciplines.

London Design Biennale is held in historic Somerset House, one of the UK’s finest and most beautiful 18th century buildings and is of international historical and architectural importance. The beautifully restored galleries at Somerset House provide participants with the opportunity to display their work in one of London’s leading venues. Each Biennale edition invites participants to respond to a universal theme set by the Artistic Director.
