Centrally located and surrounded by iconic London architecture, this landmark destination attracts an estimated 25 million visitors each year. Through the work of CSCB, the area has been transformed from a largely derelict, 13-acre site into a thriving mixed-use neighbourhood.

“designjunction has always sought to identify architecturally stunning backdrops to present the best global design. By working with CSCB, we’re putting our brands in the centre of a thriving mixed use neighbourhood, whilst providing visitors with a unique show experience. We look forward to contributing to this exciting area.”

– designjunction’s managing director, Will Sorrell.

From September 20-23, designjunction will present hundreds of product launches, boutique pop-up shops, bespoke installations, tempting street food and purpose-built bars across three key exhibition spaces; Oxo Tower Wharf, the Doon Street site and Riverside Walkway.DJ_LONDON_BrosteCopenhagen_Chairs1The Doon Street site will house 200 international design brands and premium pop-up shops.
