trendsetting east london design

East London. Two words that sum up everything that's innovative, fresh and exciting about the capital right now.

Inspiring and imaginative, its creative flair sends ripples across London and beyond. It's an infectious place to be. Where the established and ambitious are drawn to live, create and enjoy life.

With such a treasure trove of original and independent design in our backyard, we're working with three east London and local design experts; Dezeen, the Londoneer and Katie Antoniou, author of London Plinth and Run Riot to uncover the unexpected, unusual and unique.

These three Londoners will hunt down arts, fashion, jewellery, sculptures, furniture, photography or textiles, to bring together 30 hidden gems from in and around Stepney Green, the heart of east London's arts scene.
