Design For Life

3 October 2022

architecture | interior | product design

This October our exhibitions and events highlight the built and lived environment from urban design & architecture, to interior and product design.

The exhibition feature​s work from established artists, as well as new talent, based in Leicester and beyond and will be online via social media @lcbdepot and in the real world across our exhibition spaces. We’ll also be shouting about other great events and exhibitions related to these industries: let us know any via the submission form and we’ll help get the word out.

The programme will run from October 3rd – 21 October and will form part of this year’s Design Season.
