Transport for London at the Design Festival

Clockwise L-R: Vallila, Made.com, Loris & Livia, Vallila

Continuing to celebrate its Transported by Design programme, Transport for London (TfL) will be launching a number of new partnerships as part of the 2016 London Design Festival.

TfL is hosting several booths in collaboration with Designjunction, including a funfair-themed stand designed by London-based Swiss designers Loris & Livia. The booth is based on the studio’s TfL-inspired Wonderground collection and showcases items that visitors can win and buy. The products, such as tablemats, are made from the original speckled rubber flooring used in London’s underground and overground trains.

Online furniture retailer Made.com and Finnish interior textile company Vallila will also be showcasing a collection of homeware made collaboratively with TfL. The range, which includes textiles, cushions, armchairs and lighting, is inspired by the artwork, fixtures and fittings of London’s transportation system.

Another TfL-associated work on show is the Twitter Machine by London-based designer Florian Dussopt. The machine, which is shaped like the iconic round TfL logo, will print out Twitter messages throughout the festival using the Johnston typeface – the company’s original font created by Edward Johnston in 1916.

Transported by Design is a series of events and activities celebrating TfL's rich design heritage, running until December 2016. Designjunction is part of London Design Festival, which runs from September 17-25 2016. Stylus will cover the festival soon afterwards – meanwhile, have a look at London Design Festival 2015 for last year’s coverage.
