Seven of London’s brightest design artists have created unique artwork which will be showcased in Seven Dials, Covent Garden, in conjunction with London Design Festival from 14th September. The seven designers taking part in the project are: Faye Toogood, Paul Cocksedge, Vic Lee, Gitta Gschwendtner, Aberrant Architecture, Dominic Wilcox and Philippe Malouin. Their unique installations will be aerial and will sit visibly above the streets of Seven Dials, lending a whole new artistic dimension to the village.
Each of the designers have taken direct inspiration from Seven Dials and the artwork reflects elements of the village’s rich history, such as incorporating the old street names and featuring pennies, harking back to Dickensian times when it was known for penny washing to help stave off disease.
