London Design Festival is famous for transforming the capital; pop-ups, exhibitions, talks and celebrations will be taking place from 16th-24th September.
One of the Festival's most unmissable landmarks will be Villa Walala - artist Camille Walala’s incredible installation at Broadgate’s Exchange Square next to Liverpool Street.
Described as a ‘soft-textured building-block castle’ covered and coloured with digitally printed patterns and constructed from vinyl, sealed PVC inners and high-strength nylon, it promises to be a jaw-dropping display of colour and vibrancy which will add joy to the every day. Explore it, take photos and de-stress among the walls of Villa Walala.
About the artist
Camille Walala established her studio in East London in 2009 and has since evolved from textile-based work to art direction, interior design and large-scale civic art and installation projects. Drawing on influences including the Memphis Movement, the Ndebele tribe and Victor Vasarely, Walala has an irrepressible enthusiasm for playful, graphic patterns that invoke a smile. She’s worked with clients including Nike, Armani, Nintendo and Facebook.
