We’re happy to announce that Lauren Laverne will be hosting the Design Week Awards 2017 at the Tower of London on 13 June.

She is perhaps best known for radio, having worked on BBC Radio 1,2,3,4 5 live and 6 Music where she hosts the morning show.

Laverne is also co-founder and broadcast director of women’s online magazine The Pool, which is itself, a design-led proposition.
