Move, muddle and clamber over this 26 strong collection of chairs created by design studio Kellenberger-White for the London Design Festival. Each letter of the alphabet has been constructed using folded metal and licked with a different colour of paint to form a typographic rainbow. Sit back and wait for your Instagram feed to fill up with filthy words made with them.
A fifth fluorescent lion will join the other four beasts that call Trafalgar Square home during LDF. As well as being decidedly different in colour to the rest, this king of the jungle will also be a lot louder thanks to the poetry it’ll roar out across the day. The words it speaks will be chosen by the public and shown on LEDs embedded within its mouth during the day, while at night the poems will be projection mapped over the lion and onto Nelson’s column.
