Following in the wake of similar events in Miami and Basel, Design Art London runs from October 12-14 in a purpose-built marquee in Hanover Square.

It promises to bring 20 of the world’s top design galleries to London for “a geographical and chronological survey of the design scene from the 1950s to today”.

Two London dealers, The Carpenters Workshop Gallery and David Gill Galleries (Mr Gill was part of the selection committee) will participate alongside five from New York, eight from Paris, three from Brussels and one each from Milan and Shanghai.
