Lovers of all things design will be pleased to hear that over 60 showrooms in Clerkenwell, London’s creative hub, will throw open their doors this week to host a fun and engaging series of talks, debates and workshops. Clerkenwell Design Week 2011 is a three-day festival (24 to 26 May 2011) that aims to bring together a vibrant programme of events, including discussions, street parties, exhibitions and installations, all in the name of celebrating and embracing design.
Showcasing the latest product and furniture design innovations from over 60 British and international manufacturers, Clerkenwell Design Week 2011 crucially gives you the opportunity to see many world launches of new furniture and interior accessories. And for many companies, it’s also the first opportunity to showcase products that were launched at the Milan furniture fair in April.
Clerkenwell-based showrooms participating at Clerkenwell Design Week 2011 include: Ahrend, Wilkhahn, Steelcase, Orangebox, Haworth, Kusch and co, Strata Tiles, Boss, Hands, Modus, Silverline, Bene, Triumph, B-loose, Knoll, Girsberger, Brunner, Forbo, Desso, Koleksiyon, Poltrona Frau, Interstuhl, Hettich, Vitra, Moroso, Milliken, Lammhults and Bulo. Many will be staging talks with high-profile speakers.
One-off commissions also play a large part in the festival – Be a Pin Up, a life-size pin art installation by internationally acclaimed handbag designer Lulu Guinness, is one such special feature to look forward to…
