This year promised to be an exceptional, seventh edition of Clerkenwell Design Week. And the event keeps its promises. In a first for the festival, organisers have appointed architecture practice OMMX to create a strategic masterplan for the event. The plan marks a significant point in CDW’s development, with the format expanding to eight exhibition venues, a gateway destination to Clerkenwell’s showrooms, an installation trail and a brand new destination at Spa Fields.
Those are just few of the many changements introduced within the Design Week – sponsorized by Renault – which hosts a large range of visitors offering unique experiences.
At the top of the exhibitions, Design Fields, a large-scale curated exhibition of contemporary design, will be set in a speciallyconstructed two-floor pavilion at Spa Fields, near the exceptional Clerkenwell destination of Exmouth Market. Among the exhibitors, Dedon and Magis, Baux and H Furniture, Capdell and Thonet.
St james’ Church is the new key location of Clerkenwell, where are exposed diverse installations, such as The Church by Tom Dixon. The Garden welcomes Project, hosting leading international brands presenting furniture, lighting and product design, alongside the hugely successful interior products show Additions. Also new for 2016, British Collection will be located in the stunning barrel-roofed Crypt on Clerkenwell Green, St James’s Church. Some of the UK’s most exciting homegrown talent will showcase their latest furniture, lighting and product designs within this unique space.
Many evets within the showrooms: from Cassina to Flexform, but also Moroso, Vitra and Cappellini.
