Our October issue, available from 5 September, looks at the V&A's mannequins, Tate Britain's robots, Rogers' British Museum extension and the politics of designing the 9/11 museum exhibits
This year, there’s a guide to the most interesting features of the London Design Festival on an actual design object: the smart ebike, sponsor of the 2013 Icon Design Trail. You will be able to follow a route, specially devised by designers and artists, while enjoying the adventure of a ride on the latest electric bike technology.
There’s one week left – you have until Friday 26 July – to register your London Design Festival event to be included in the Icon Design Trail.
The Icon Design Trail is a highly influential guide to the best events and shows during the London Design Festival, (LDF). This leading independent guide is the essential accessory for all discerning festival visitors. Pick up your copy at the festival or download the free App now.
As London Design Festival approaches, Icon goes behind the scenes to visit the factories where glossy products are prototyped and manufactured. In this issue we travelled all over Europe to see the places and meet the people responsible for these complicated and fascinating processes.
