Award-winning, London-based design agency PriestmanGoode is shining a spotlight on sustainable design this September with a number of exhibitions and events taking place during the London Design Festival.
- PGxRCA: Precious Waste, Single Use Plastics Re-born is an online exhibition showcasing the work of 11 textiles students from the Royal College of Art who were tasked to create new materials from single-use plastics
- TURF, a concept to re-establish our connection with food by empowering people to grow their own, will feature in a new window display at the PriestmanGoode showroom in central London
- Paul Priestman, designer and chairman of PriestmanGoode, will speak about plastics and the circular economy as part of the Global Design Forum. The digital event is free to attend and will be live on 20 September at 1pm BST.
- PriestmanGoode is also sponsoring Green Grads at Planted, an exhibition of work by new graduates nationwide whose work has embraced issues of nature and sustainability. The exhibition takes place over the weekend of 25-26 September at the Samsung KX experience space in King’s Cross, London
Commenting on the initiative, agency chairman Paul Priestman said: “For many years, PriestmanGoode has advocated for more long-term thinking in design and has worked to raise awareness of the positive impact that design can have to help solve environmental as well as social issues.
“Sustainability and circular thinking have got to be at the centre of all future design solutions. In this vein, we’re pleased to focus our efforts for the London Design Festival this year on a number of projects, initiatives and partnerships that meet our ambitions to use design to help shape a better future.”
Earlier this year, PriestmanGoode joined forces with Italian aircraft interiors supplier Geven to design a next-generation family of seats for economy, premium economy, premium economy+ and business class cabins.
The project includes a complete overhaul of Geven’s catalogue products and aims to provide the manufacturer with a distinct design language driven by four key attributes: functional, timeless, clean and sculptural.
