(UK) - mondo*arc editor Paul James to choose a selection of Light + Building products for this year's DX Freight.

May Design Series, organised by UBM Live Built Environment, is delighted to welcome back DX Freight after its popular debut last year.
This year, DX Freight will host a display of 60 of the best products from the international show circuit in four specially designed rectangular crates, open at both ends for ease of visitor viewing. Products will include highlights from across a selection of shows including Maison et Objet Paris; IMM Cologne; Light & Build; Frankfurt and iSaloni, Milan.
The four crates will be curated by those from industry which include:
Paul James, Editor, mondo*arc – encapsulating Light + Building
Bethan Ryder, Luxury News Editor, Telegraph Luxury – best bits of Maison et Objet Paris
Johnny Tucker, Editor, Blueprint – unearthing the gems at Milan
Tobias Lutz, Managing Director, Architonic – rounding up IMM Cologne
With up to 60 different companies getting involved, the feature will demonstrate the best in up and coming new design as well as showcase vast blend of design talent from across Europe.  Keep an eye on to see the latest companies to sign up to DX Freight straight as the international shows finish.

Paul James, editor of mondo*ar, commented: “We know that not everyone makes it to Light + Building, particularly architects and designers, as it means a long time out of the office. The diverse selection of products I will be choosing, from architectural to decorative to control, will give visitors a sense of what was on show in Frankfurt.”

Johnny Tucker, Editor of Blueprint, revealed of his crate: “Milan is a massive melting pot of creativity and it’s going to be an exciting challenge to distil down it’s essence for the May Design Series DX Freight feature. If you can’t make it to Milan, this should give you the full flavour of the event.”
Tobias Lutz, Managing Director of Architonic, said: “London is booming once more. It’s fitting that such a creative and economic global hub should play host to the increasingly international furnishing fair that is May Design Series. As the number one online resource for architecture and design, Architonic is delighted to collaborate with this event, which, with its professional atmosphere and emphasis on quality has quickly established itself as a firm fixture in the design calendar. If it’s May, it’s got to be London.”
Andrew Vaughan, Brand Director for May Design Series, said: “We are thrilled to have this feature return to the show after the success of last year. It’s a real opportunity for retailers and contractors, big and small to view at a glance the collection of the best products from our international counterparts chosen by those closest to the industry, all in one space.”
May Design Series 2014 will amass close to 400 exhibitors in 5 distinct sectors right through from Furniture, Decor, Lighting (including ARC), Kitchens & Bathrooms and DX. The Furniture Show at May Design Series, new for 2014 will welcome a preview of established INTERIORS UK exhibitors making a one stop destination, both home and abroad for new products covering each interior space.
May Design Series will run from the 18-20 May at London ExCeL. Visit to register for your complimentary pass.
