The annual London Design Festival came to a close yesterday after 9 days of bringing cutting edge design to the streets and venues of London.

One of the trends that caught our eye was the design work that took to the skies of London. As part of the celebrations seven designers took on the challenge to move their design work off the ground and into the skies of Seven Dials and Covent Garden and the results were pretty spectacular.

As you can see in the pictures below artists such as Vic Lee, Faye Toogood and Dominic Wilcox suspended everything from ladders to birdcages for the pleasure of passersby. Each piece is linked to the history of the area adding another dimension of creativity to what they did.

Check out some of the highlights below.
