Between May 22-24 we participated once again at London’s Clerkenwell Design Week. This important three-day design festival celebrates design’s creative richness, social relevance and technological advancements.
The festival offered an exciting program of workshops, presentations, product launches and debates. All the elements you would expect from a festival, including exhibitions, installations, street entertainment, music, food, parties and receptions were also offered. The festival is the ideal opportunity for the creative design community to meet new and existing clients in a relaxed yet inspiring environment.
This year’s festival had tens of thousands of visitors, and generated a lot of interesting meetings with people from all over the world. Clerkenwell Design Week unveils a wealth of design and architecture talent, showcasing the newest product and furniture innovations from both British and international brands.
Boasting over 60 showrooms, a wealth of creative agencies and more architects per square mile than anywhere else on the planet, Clerkenwell is the UK’s most important design community. Clerkenwell is also filled with historic venues and architecture making it an ideal location to exhibit design in a new and exciting way. Clerkenwell has housed craft workshops, printers, clockmakers and jewelers since the Industrial Revolution. Printing and bookbinding still flourish, as do graphic designers. In the last two decades, architectural design and other creative practices have flocked to Clerkenwell’s central studio and workshop premises.
