Clerkenwell Design Week – Highlights from London, May 2016

During the past couple of years, Clerkenwell Design Week has proven to be one of the most exciting exhibitions in London for international furniture, lighting and product design. By far it is my favourite event for catching up with new interior design trends and meeting talented designers or innovators.

Clerkenwell London

Clerkenwell is home to more creative businesses and architects per square mile than anywhere else on the planet, making it truly one of the most important design hubs in the world. To celebrate this rich and diverse community, Clerkenwell Design Week has created a showcase of leading UK and international brands and companies presented in a series of showroom events,  exhibitions and special installations that take place across the area.

Clerkenwell Design Week

This year we had the pleasure to enjoy the 7th edition of Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW) sponsored by Renault.  It was truly the most ambitious celebration of this distinctive and creative London quarter. Set across three days, 24–26 May, CDW hosted the best in design from around the world, and featured a huge range of home-grown talent.

Visitor experience was at the heart of CDW 2016, and key aspect of the show this year was to provide a rich and varied exploration of design, for the expert and newcomer alike. A compelling combination of exhibitions, installations and live events across 120 spaces confirmed the festival’s reputation as one of Europe’s most distinctive design events.
