The London Design Festival 2015 just keeps getting bigger and better and this year is no exception with 400 events and installations across London.

Here are our top picks for 2015:

This year Somerset House is a major new destination, showcasing an exciting programme of events. 10 Designers in the West Wing will host the work of ten internationally renowned design names, many of whom will be collaborating with brands to create innovative room installations.

Hem have created customisable Alphabeta lamps which will illuminate in time with a grand piano, creating an interaction between light and sound, while designer Faye Toogood will recreate a derelict English drawing room by sketching directly onto the walls and creating abstract cardboard furniture sculptures.
