A Land Of Moquette Is Coming To This Free Festival
How Moquette Land is expected to look.

Wouldn't the world be a better place with more moquette in it?

If that's always been your opinion too, your dreams will come true this weekend as 'Moquette Land' becomes part of a huge free festival dedicated to transport design.

Moquette: it grows on trees, you know

From trees decorated with the patterned material to benches and walls — and even floral roundels — the display will show off one of the most recognisable features of the underground. And we got a sneak behind-the-scenes look at the creations being made.

Transported By Design Festival will see Regent Street closed from Oxford Circus to Piccadilly Circus stations, and the street filled with three zones — past, present and future — showing off the everyday icons that have made up this city's landscape since Victorian times.

Maybe it's a Covent Garden roundel.

See heritage buses, taxis and a tube carriage; maps and posters from across the decades; plans for the future of transport in London and plenty more at this family day out. A chance to properly indulge the transport geek in you.

Transported by Design Festival is on 3 July from noon-6pm, on Regent Street. Make sure to download the map before you go. See the website for more details.
