This spring, Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW) will return for its eleventh edition, taking over London’s most creative district from 24th – 26th May.
CDW is one of the UK’s leading independent design festivals, providing a welcome platform for brands to showcase their products and for the 100+ resident showrooms to open their doors to new audiences. Clerkenwell boasts a deep layer of historical heritage, from clock making to gin distilling, along with a vibrant network of architects, designers and creatives that add a rich dimension to CDW.
This year CDW’s festival route is extended to include Charterhouse Square which will see Orticolario’s Delenimentum installation taking centre stage.
The gigantic version of the legendary Adirondack Chair created in 1903 by the designer Thomas Lee is a playful and photo-worthy addition to this year’s show. Visitors can expect a show full of the latest designs, innovations and creative ideas, plus installations celebrating the fascinating history of Clerkenwell, as well as hundreds of design-led fringe events, popups, workshops, talks and showroom presentations.
CDW will also host a series of talks in Spa Fields by leading designers and architects tackling topical and newsworthy issues.
Across EC1, there will be nine exhibitions, in both purpose built and historical venues, all showcasing a curated mix of leading brands and emerging talent covering furniture, lighting, textiles, surfaces, accessories and product design from around the world.
Each year CDW Presents showcases specially commissioned, site-specific street spectacles across Clerkenwell.
Clerkenwell Design Week takes place at venues dotted across EC1 in London, United Kingdom.
Details can be found on CDW's website.
