Designing in Turbulent Times

A Central Saint Martins, LVMH and Maison/0 exhibition for London Design Festival 2019

Faced with increasingly urgent social and environmental pressures, creativity can be a powerful agent for innovation and transformation. Across a wide range of design disciplines, this exhibition showcases a selection of the very best recent graduate projects from Central Saint Martins, offering compelling and disruptive propositions for more sustainable and equitable futures.

A public engagement programme, including a series of sustainable design workshops, will accompany the exhibition.

This exhibition is an initiative of Maison/0, the sustainable innovation programme created at Central Saint Martins UAL in partnership with the luxury group LVMH.
