What to expect


Renault will showcase their design philosophy in a unique and playful way, creating an immersive experience around the concept ‘Beautiful Life’. Renault TreZor, voted the ‘Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year by the Festival Automobile Jury’ will make its UK debut at the show. Distinctive detail such as the analogue volt-meter and the animated honeycomb cooling vents on the bonnet make this concept a must-see for designers. Also on display will be the results of Renault’s collaboration with Central Saint Martins’ MA Industrial Design students, who are undertaking a brief on the future of modularity in car design.


A first for designjunction, a collaboration with Turkishceramics will present a striking and fully immersive ceramic installation that will be created in the central fountain space on Granary Square.

The selected artist Adam Nathaniel Furman will present ‘Gateways’, a series of colourful tiled gates that will invite visitors to take a journey through the rich history of ceramics in Turkey. The four gates are four meters high, each encompassing a different design story including: The Classic Gate, The Timber Gate, The Retro Gate and The Metro Gate.


Offering beautiful flowers direct from Dutch fields, flower delivery service bloomon will create a whimsical walk underneath a canopy of flowers with a pastel coloured passageway on Granary Square.

Covered in foliage inside and out, the tunnel will be closed at one end with a secret hidden door, behind which a flower-filled room will host intimate workshops and talks, providing intrigue and inspiration.


Campari®, Italy’s iconic red bittersweet apéritif, will host a two-week residency in Kings Cross. Campari Creates recreates the spirit of Milan’s stylish Navigli canal district, bringing a customised narrowboat to the Granary Square waterway throughout designjunction. The residency will focus on bringing two of Milan’s greatest exports to Kings Cross: Campari and creativity.

Over the two-week residency, a series of ‘Campari Creates Masterclasses’ allows attendees to get creative whilst sipping one of Campari’s signature serves. Alongside this, an artist will be commissioned to build a bespoke public installation inspired by
Campari’s long history of creativity and design.


Granary Square will also welcome the Tala Mini bar that will serve a concoction of white ports and tonics from a refurbished vintage Mini Cooper. The Mini will also house a cluster of Voronoi bulbs on its roof to form a forest-like canopy, taking inspiration from the natural world.
