The most exciting festival in Clerkenwell has come to an end.
Bigger and better than ever, this year’s CDW saw interactive installations, a vibrant fringe, immersive showroom experiences, and beautiful brands come together to showcase an astonishing range of creativity.
Our highlights (and photographs) are legion, but here are just a few final observations:
Jimbobart at Additions – St John’s Square
The brainchild of designer James Ward, Jimbobart is a range of slightly eccentric, very subversive ceramics based on ‘expressive animal drawings’. Our favourite is ‘The Cake Crusader’ (as pictured).
Metro Imaging – 32 Great Sutton Street
Visitors had an exclusive opportunity to explore the printing specialists’ work, which includes printing onto surfaces such as metal, glass, and stone. The Kate Moss print in particular stood out dramatically against the stark white walls.
Tarkett at Desso – 23-25 Great Sutton Street
Flooring manufacturer Tarkett teamed up with trend forecasters Scarlet Opus for a presentation on upcoming design trends for commercial interiors, with a translation for flooring. Trend Presenter Sally Angharad gave a highly engaging snapshot of the current influences on the creative industry and how these are set to evolve during this year and next.
