Tent London set to launch new digital show

Tent London will return to the London Design Festival with a new digital show, led by Intel and Jotta. 

Remastered: A Visibly Smart Production from Intel, replaces last year’s Tent Digital event, which Tent director Jimmy MacDonald says ‘didn’t deliver too well’.

Jotta helps mediate and deliver collaborative art and design projects. It has worked with Intel, which is powering six examples of interaction design in collaboration with product designers, photographers and artists.

Prominent works from art history will be reinterpreted as part of the exhibition, which will also investigate how emerging technology can effect design practice to shape new work. 

Tent will also put on a new show, Superbrands London, featuring product design from ‘twelve mega-brands’ including Bang & Olufsen and Chevrolet, says MacDonald.

He says Tent will expand this year ‘with four new venues outside of the main building.’

These ‘distinctly different areas’ will include a paper installation by paper manufacturer Arjowiggins and an installation by the Slovenian Embassy, presented by The Museum of Architecture and Design called Silent Revolutions, looking at a set of innovations and designs from the country.

Tent London runs from 22-25 September.
