New: designjunction App by Architonic


Powered by Architonic, the designjunction App acts as a virtual extension to the designjunction and lightjunction shows, providing you with detailed information about the products of participating brands and allowing you to follow up after the exhibitions.



For each product you will find images of its variants and typical applications, and also have the possibility of enquiring directly about catalogues, prices and stockists. The intuitive navigation – by product group, manufacturer, designer or free text search – provides you with fast search results anywhere and at any time. As a result, the app is perfect for private design enthusiasts, or for business use by planners or architects.

designjunction and Architonic both specialise in the curation and presentation of premium design brands. While designjunction, as London‘s leading design destination, does this physically, 
Architonic is the world‘s premier database for online research on design products.
