The annual London Design Festival is nearly upon us. The Festival will run from 13-21 September with an extensive and varied programme of installations, exhibitions, events, talks and tours across the capital. The Victoria and Albert Museum will again provide the 'hub', hosting a range of exciting, experimental and immersive projects. Highlights include:

Ace Hotel London Shoreditch will be a central destination during London Design Festival as the Shoreditch Design Triangle's official hub location. The hotel will host a series of design-focused installations and activities by Modern Design Review in the show 'Super Stimuli' working with designers Fabien Cappello, Martino Gamper, Michael Marriott and Bethan Laura Wood. Italy-based research workshop and studio Fabrica will also present 'Extra-Ordinary Gallery', a study of ordinary things designed by a team of multi-cultural designers, in the hotel's reception retail space. Ace Hotel is well known for its support of local commerce and culture - as well as innovative partnerships with local businesses, artisans and creatives.

Leading bar and restaurant design studio, AfroditiKrassa, has designed TwoRuba, Hilton Tower Bridge's new destination bar. The new look to this established hotel is part of the Hilton's ongoing transformation of the brand.

The new bar reflects the area's rich historical background - the iconic Tower Bridge, the modernity of the City's buildings and the choice of materials used has been inspired by the location's earlier role as a Leather, Hide and Wool Exchange. The new bar opens on 24thSeptember.

The project has invited four designers to explore the concept of home. Jasper Morrison, Patternity, Raw Edges and Studioilse will present a personal vision of a room examining what home.
