Musings from designers and creatives defining London’s multicultural landscape.
Leading practitioners in photography, fashion, art and design will take a seat at a specially designed table to discuss multiculturalism’s influence on London’s unique design DNA. You are invited to join the discussion.
How can cultural institutions and creative platforms empower a melting pot of creative talent to foster new ideas and accurately reflect a shared identity? Ilori is commissioned to create a new series of chairs for Salon and will also present Not all that Glitters is Gold; an installation that invites the audience to choose a seat instinctively. These chairs aren’t what they seem- who will choose aesthetics, comfort or functionality?
