The current London Underground map, designed by Harry Beck in 1931, is extremely easy to use but geographical takes many liberties. In fact, it makes the cityscape of London appear quite simple (which it isn't). Mark Noad took the geographic subtleties of wider London and applied it to his own redesign of the Tube Map.

Located in London, King’s Cross Station is an incredible project scheduled to open in only seven months. As World Architecture News states, “Designed by experienced architects John McAslan + Partners, the multi-phase scheme takes a three-pronged approach: re-use, restore, and new build. The various train sheds and buildings across the Western Range are being re-used, the Station’s original Grade I listed facade from 1852 is being uncovered and restored to its former splendour, and an extensive new Western Concourse will be inserted above the London Underground Ticketing Hall.”

We knew we were going to like UK-based Ian Stevenson when his bio read, "Ian is a professional man, secure in his sexuality and proud of his body... Abandoning computers, Ian now grabs his pen hard and with vigor. He manipulates it in ways never before heard or seen on this little Earth. Your face will implode when faced with his fluids (from his pen)."

We posted William Edmonds' work back in 2008 and his work has developed over the last few years. Edmonds is based in London and is part of the three person artist/design group Nous Vous. Years later, we continue to find Edmonds' use of color and pattern pleasing.

We are not going all pro-nuclear weapons here, but this is a well-designed concept for a table lamp. The lamp's surfaces were created using real fluid dynamics simulations, aka, it was not just a flash-in-the-pan creation. The piece was created by Veneridesign of London.
