Today was the start of the sixth edition of Clerkenwell Design Week, which hosts the most innovative products, designers and brands around.
Here are some locations that caught our eye along the showcase trail:
Design Factory – The Farmiloe Building
The Design Factory represents the central hub of Clerkenwell Design Week.
This year, it features the headline sponsor, Renault, and its brand new Kadjar car in the main atrium, hosted below an astonishing lighting installation.
As we enter the Design Factory, the first two floors showcase a range of stunning furniture brands, from simple pieces to clever concepts.
One highlight is a colourful paper mobile with inspirational phrases by the British Contract Furnishing Association (BCFA).
The third floor of the Victorian building is dedicated to the Lighting Factory. A variety of lighting brands is displayed in the spacious area, from tree lights by Di Classe to sleek and sophisticated Anglepoise lamps, demonstrating the
breadth of creativity in the industry.
Glaze – St. John’s Square
Created by Ben and Jelena Cousins, this Murano glass-inspired pavilion is a true work of art.
Visitors are encouraged to walk through the steel-framed structure to discover the wonderful colours and the various perspectives Glaze offers.
The Invisible Store of Happiness – St. John’s Gate
This massive intricate wooden structure, explores the versatility of two major hardwoods: American Maple and American Cherry.
Creators Sebastian Cox and Laura Bacon wanted to push the material to its limits with this experiment.
We’ll be back at Clerkenwell Design Week tomorrow; let us know what you’ve seen so far.
