Inspired isn’t the word for what we have felt in anticipation to the biggest few weeks in the design world. The practice of design can be seen as the perfect craftthe offspring of a symbiotic marriage between art and commerce, flair and function- creating a harmony that we strive for on this publication. Which is why it seemed fitting to dedicate this issue to design, and in particular the Kensington design houses representing the borough on the international stages of London Design Festival and Chelsea’s own Decorex. These are platforms featuring not only the best in the UK, but the best in the world, and we are privileged to offer an insight into these burgeoning creative realms. Elsewhere in the magazine you will find an exclusive interview with revolutionary artist Jake Chapman on his attempt at world peace for a day, while Tom Conran speaks openly about finding himself where his father- the inimitable Terence Conran- wasn’t looking. Check in on our social media channels via Facebook and Twitter (@KCReview) over the coming months as well be posting some exclusive content, competitions and commentary on the everinspiring world of art and culture in the Royal Borough.
