London Design Festival at The Conran Shop Marylebone High Street

The London Design Festival 2019 began on Saturday. I have collected my Red Book, the Guide to the whole of the Festival.* I biked up to Marylebone High Street and found it at The Conran Shop, the official design district hub for Marylebone. You'll also find three floors of design excellence. Keep going until you're right at the northern end of this lovely street, it's No. 55.
This year, especially for the Festival, the whole of the window area has been given over to uber art gallery Hauser and Wirth, a party has been arranged for this coming Wednesday (the 18th, register here), and you will be dazzled by the designs on display.

The following pictures can give you only a glimpse. 
Expect your eyes to fill with inspiration when you see the posters, prints, scarves and pocket squares, ceramics and sculptures, all by Hauser and Wirth artists.
And the work is suitable for all ages. From Eduardo Chillida's skateboards to luxury cashmere wraps. Buy now or right around Christmastime you might regret it. 
It's a beautifully curated art and design display. And just behind it you'll find there's a display of living greenery - ferns and other favourite leafies and some fine cacti and succulents. Some flourish in pots; some are ready grown maintenance-free in terrariums.

Besides this there's three floors of shop to browse through, the Conran Kitchen and its celebrated coffee on the ground floor, and the charm of old Marylebone just outside.
