Clerkenwell Design Week is a must for any Designer. Not only does the sun seem to always shine for those 3 days, it’s were the place nearly all new products are launched. Inspiration is everywhere. From installations in the street, poster, banners, underground exhibitions, canapés everywhere you go, it’s almost an assault on the senses.
This year will be my 7th year trekking to the big city in May. My first trip I had no idea what to expect, I travelled alone, but spent my whole day talking to anyone and everyone. Although grouped together in the term ‘Designer’, you’ll be pushed to find a more diverse group of individuals. Everyone has a story, and opinion a opposing experience and we always want to talk about it!
Through the last seven years, I have been able to learn so much from talks and workshops hosted within the hundreds of showrooms that open their doors. Guest speakers inspire both the young fresh faced and the oldies that think of that area of London as a second home.
Over the years i have made a bike smoothie, practiced chair yoga, made a fascinator, attempted to origami and enjoyed a cocktail designed specially for me! The London furniture suppliers pull out all the stops, every year, as a celebration for their clients, dealers and also their staff.
If you are planning on heading to London for the Clerkenwell Design Week, do let us know and we will do our best to see you there.
