Designjunction is hosting a varied talks programme over two days, which will see the likes of Benjamin Hubert, creative director at Layer, and Ruth Wassermann, design director at, speaking.

The Head Above Water art installation is located at the Queen’s Stone Jetty, by Gabriel's Wharf on the Riverside Walkway in South Bank. The installation, designed by Steuart Padwick, is a nine-metre high, interactive head sculpture, which looks to raise awareness of mental health issues.

The Rado Star Prize UK sees the 10 finalists of a competition to create socially-led products on show as an exhibition at this year’s Designjunction.

The winner will be announced at the opening of the show on 20 September. This year’s theme was “On Time/ Time Off”, and encouraged designers to explore how design can improve life by supporting busy, fast-paced lifestyles whilst also allowing people to slow down and relax.
