London Design Festival 2012: Conran Shop goes Crimson for LDF

As a joint celebration of the a 10th successful year of London Design Festival, and the 25th year of the world famous Conran shop at the Michelin Building in London’s leafy Kensington area, Sir Terrence has turned his flagship into a tribute to the iconically British pillar box red, as sported by post boxes, phones boxes and London buses.

Whilst a lot of the pieces on display (and for sale) were, of course, well know design icons given a splash of colour, there was also a small amount of new pieces on show. We particularly enjoyed getting a good look at Sebastian Bergne’s clever Measuring Square Scarf and its gorgeous minimalist red box. A great deal of noise was also being made about Alexander Taylors “Grip” LED flashlight, apparently inspired by BMX handle grips. We did appreciate the demonstration of the soft rubber torch suction-cupping to walls, but we were mightly disappointed to find that torch doesn’t turn on an off with a squeeze—rather a slightly apologetic button on the handle end.
