This June the Los Angeles Design Festival is starting again with its special motto “Design with purpose” and you can get a kick out of the coolest design event in LA, especially because it’s going to explode all over the city. What a wonderful time to conjugate design and the city in a community-supporting event devoted to emphasising its own rich culture and atmosphere. “Honoring our city’s rich design culture” is the event’s main feature, oriented to reach a wide setting and, in this way, being the representation of the richness and diversity of LA. National and international figures have been invited to celebrate creations in all fields, from interior and architecture, to graphic to set and fashion and costume: no one will be left aside!
