Clerkenwell has more than 60 design showrooms and loads of design and architectural practices amongst its elegant greens, squares and historic buildings. Not to mention all the cool pop-up clubs and shops, restaurants and hip bars. All of this makes it perfect location to host a design festival, and the organizers of Clerkenwell Design Week did just that. The three-day annual festival celebrated design’s creative richness, its social impact and its power for change.
The festival was packed with an interesting mix of exhibitions, product launches from leading brands, street entertainment, music, food and parties. It also included a stimulating series of seminars, workshops and debates by big names in design that tackled key issues facing creatives today.
All in all the Clerkenwell Design Week was entertaining, inspiring and challenged all your preconceptions.
