This September will see the launch of Design Frontiers: a free, group exhibition of over 30 leading international designers at Somerset House in London. Design Frontiers will illuminate the thinking and working practices of these celebrated designers, whose work is redefining the frontiers of their disciplines: from automotive to fashion, product design to graphics, digital to performance. This independent production will run from 18-24 September, coinciding with London Design Festival 2017.

With contributions from 19 designers and artistic talents from around the globe, Danish company KVADRAT will hold a seperate exhibition called 'My Canvas' as an homage to a Kvadrat staple: the vibrant and elegant upholstery textile Canvas 2, created and colour set this year by renowned Italian colorist Giulio Ridolfo.

In an open brief, Kvadrat have invited 19 emerging designers to create their interpretations of Canvas 2, informed by contemporary design. The exhibition is titled 'My Canvas', lending itself to the individual creative viewpoint revealed in each piece. Be it the beauty and intricacy of the yarn, the colour palette, the structural properties or architectural expression of the textile, the contributions invite the viewer on a journey of tactile discovery.

The My Canvas exhibition will be featuring Danish design talent GamFratesi.
