And there are evenmore things going
onoutside theSortingOffice
Last year’sWest EndDesignDistrict has
been transformed into aQuarter.
Organised inpartnershipwithVisa, the
idea is to unite four areas of central
London:Marylebone andMayfair,
Holborn andTottenhamCourt Road,
Fitzrovia andRegent Street, andCovent
Garden and Soho, which between them
include stores such as Another Country,
TheConran Shop, JohnLewis, Skandium,
Republic of FritzHansen andTracey
Neuls.Within each area all Visa
cardholders can take advantage of
discounts across a select number of
design-led stores throughout themonth
of September. All the shops and
showrooms taking part are listedwithin
a dedicatedmap of the area (see page 70
formore information).
The exhibition isn’t all about selling
stuff though
This year’s chosen charity is Teddy’s
Wish. The exhibition’s organisers have
curated the installation
AChild’s Dream

Nineteenof theUK’s leading designers,
including PearsonLloyd, FayeToogood,

the iconic AngleposieType75mini desk
