The move of designjunction away from Granary Square might have left London’s King Cross bereft during the London Design Festival, but the relocation of Tom Dixon’s headquarters and flagship store to the Coal Office together with a raft of pop-up shows for the festival has in fact cemented the area as a buzzing design district.

The square gets its name from a restored granary building at the heart of King?s Cross ? now home to world-famous arts college, Central Saint Martins, and the first show was Creative Unions ? an exhibition of the work of the University’s recent graduates themed around the idea of design becoming an agent in the dissolution of boundaries. One of the highlights was Cohabits: Furniture Assembly for Two by Erica Jensen ? flatpack furniture and assembly instructions designed specifically to suit the characteristics of individual couples interviewed by the designer.
