London Design Biennale

Emotional States

The second edition of London Design Biennale will explore the theme of Emotional States.
 
The theme has been chosen to provoke a broad interpretation across design disciplines, with immersive and engaging installations that interrogate how design affects every aspect of people's lives the way we live and how we live but also influences our very being, emotions and experiences.
 
Emotions are universal, with shared meanings that transcend borders. Installations will explore the full spectrum of emotional life, from happiness to anger, sadness to disgust. Together the countries’ responses to the theme will present an exciting laboratory of ideas that will investigate the important relationship between design, strong emotional responses and real social needs.
 

Visitors to London Design Biennale will interact with brand new work by world-leading architects, designers, scientists, writers and artists in a broad, vibrant exhibition that includes AI and robotics, virtual reality, large-scale sculpture, immersive digital installations, performances and renderings of the future.
