“The V&A Sackler Centre acts as the Festival’s epicentre, hosting the main public information point and the Festival press office, as well as an extensive programme of seminars, talks and workshops. Special events include Breakfast Talks With The Times, lunchtime events, talks and tours.”

“The Sackler Centre, with Spaces curated by Suzanne Trocmé, will once again host an extensive programme of seminars, talks and special events, as well as a business and VIP space. Visitors will be able to take in the series of designs and interventions using a specially designed London Design Centre at the V&A map.”

This is a wonderful opportunity to meet the talented designer makers and ask about their process, design and craftsmanship.  The Designer Makers form part of the British Furniture Confederation. The British Furniture Confederation, (BFC) was formed in 2007 to champion the UK furniture industry to UK and EU governments. A vital and rapidly developing part of the industry is the Designer/Makers sector. Made up of very small businesses scattered all over the UK, they produce high quality pieces of furniture principally for commissions from private clients.
