UK launch of the Fairphone 2 at London Design Festival

News

We’re packing our bags for the UK as we get ready for our pop-up space in London during the London Design Festival. Starting Saturday, 26 September, we’ll showcase our latest smartphone taking visitors behind-the-scenes of producing a mobile phone. Register for the weekend to let us know that you’re coming.

Our two-day pop-up event near London Bridge will be a hub of interactive workshops hosted by renowned industry players who are using design to change the way we connect to our products. Throughout the weekend from 10:00 to 6:00 PM, the space will be open for the public to see and play with the Fairphone 2.

London-Outside

Follow the Fairphone blue – see you at Melior Place near London Bridge on 26 & 27 September.

In a nutshell, we’ll be rolling out hands-on workshops on repairability with The Restart Project, product design with Seymourpowell and software with Kwamecorp. Bethnal Green Ventures will be hosting a panel discussion on social business with B Corp UK and other social entrepreneurs and we’ll be finishing the weekend with a film screening of “We Will Win Peace” with a Q&A on international advocacy for conflict-free minerals.

To get an idea what’s to come, here’s our pop-up from 2013:
