DesignJunctionDesignJunction returns to London for a fifth year to give you an exciting insight into some of the most innovative creations to emerge from the design world. The cutting edge show takes place at the disused 1960's Sorting Office, just a few minutes from buzzy and creative Clerkenwell, which is home to some of London's leading architecture and design studios. In September 2015 the show will present more than 180 brands across four enormous floors as well as a dedicated lighting show, a retail shopping zone, live Flash Factories, a leading seminar programme, large-scale installations and on-site eateries.

There are plenty of great places to stay nearby, so check out The Sorting Office hotel guide for all the latest deals.
