One of this year’s LDF highlights was the annual dinner with the designers at Heal’s, hosted by its CEO Will Hobhouse.
Held in Heal’s Tottenham Court Road store, the evening began with an intimate chair making workshop – led by design legend Philippe Starck – to celebrate the UK launch of the new furniture brand TOG. The event also coincided with the preview of Sir Kenneth Grange’s Leaning Wall system for Heal’s new home collection, Ambrose.
The evening continued with a stylish banquet in-store, at which Starck and Grange were joined by fellow designers including Matthew Hilton, William Warren and Sebastian Bergne. The dinner was also attended by an array of emerging designers who have recently collaborated with Heal’s, from Sebastian Cox and Matthew Elton, to Magnus Pettersen, Matthew Galvin and the winners of Heal’s Discovers 2014.
