Designjunction in Kings Cross's Granary Square
 
This year, Designjunction moved from Holborn to Kings Cross, and it was indeed a good move. Instead of cramming hundreds of stands and outlets into huge abandoned buildings, this year's show was split into four areas around the Granary Square. It was easier to navigate and [...]
