London-area Clerkenwell is home to more than 300 architects and designers and can easily brands itself as one of the most productive design area in the world. To celebrate this creativity, Clerkenwell Design Week has been running for the past seven years and this year yet again, is full of exhibitions, work presentations and workshops. We’ve picked out the four unmissable things for this year’s CDW:
Tom Dixon and The Church
British designer Tom Dixon has installed a Chandelier from his Materiality Collection inside the St James Church on Clerkenwell Green.
A gateway to the showrooms, this is a unique space for meet & greets, they are serving delicious food and wifi available throughout. There is also two installations designed by architecture practice Studio Egret West and BDP.
Flea Folly Architects have collaborated with Dutch wood flooring manufacturer Hakwood to create a 4.5m timber structure inside the historic St John’s Gate.
Museum of Making
Created by White Arkitekter, the Museum of Making will function as a social space dedicated to the art of making.
Clerkenwell Design Week is now open from 24 to 26 May 2016.
