Set across three days 22-24 May 2018, Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW) returns for its ninth edition, hosting the best in design from the UK and beyond, and featuring a wide range of talent from the area from young entrepreneurial start-ups to well established design practices. As the annual focus for London’s leading design district, the festival programme has been tailored to reflect the unique nature of this vibrant London hub, home to a plethora of creative businesses, design consultancies, showrooms and architectural practices.
2018 will again play host to hundreds of fringe events, showroom presentations, workshops, talks and public-facing installations all with design at their heart. Events run over three days and follow a distinct trail north to south from Spa Fields down to Farringdon linking together several exhibition spaces and a series of specially commissioned installations.
Each year, Clerkenwell Design Week displays new projects and commissioned installations located within high profile spaces across Clerkenwell. Working with leading names in design, engineering and architecture, these projects aim to bring spectacle and energy to the district whilst pushing the boundaries of design concepts, process and material capabilities. This year, sustainability is a key theme with several participants and projects addressing this trend.
Integral to the festival are the local resident design showrooms, many of whom partner with CDW, providing an array of stimulating events from talks and workshops to major installations. Over 90 companies will be participating in CDW 2018, including high-end furniture, lighting, kitchen and bathroom brands alongside specialist manufacturers.
Our Interiors team will be attending CDW every day, to be in with a chance of winning a bottle of champagne, just hand any of them your business card to be entered into a draw – one lucky winner will also win a wine tasting experience! We are looking forward to seeing existing and new partners.
