100% Design is the showpiece event of the London Design Festival, and this year it's all change with new owners and a new man at the helm – William Knight, former deputy director of the London Design Festival. Katy Salter spoke to him about what design fans can expect at this year's show

 

Clerkenwell's London Metropolitan Archives holds many treasures, including probably the UK's largest collection of antique playing cards. Around 90% of the 12,000 packs are stored on behalf of The Worshipful Company of Makers of Playing Cards and the rest belong to the City of London. The LMA's Jeremy Smith gives us a behind-the-scenes look

 

There's more than 200 events happening across the capital from 14-23 September as part of London Design Festival, including flagship design fair 100% Design.

With its mature trees and park benches, it's a favourite lunchtime spot for Clerkenwell's office workers, but few of them probably realise just how significant their place of brief escape really is.
