It is that time of year again when our attention turns to London for Clerkenwell Design Week. The groundbreaking exhibition is now in its fifth year. How time has flown. Fast forward to 2014 and it is recognised as one of the must see events of the design calendar showcasing the latest creations by designers and manufacturers from the UK and around the world. Set amid the historic area of Clerkenwell, the three-day festival features an array of leading design showrooms based in the locality, alongside four focused exhibitions, The Design Factory, Platform, Detail and Additions.
The Design Factory: Based at The Farmiloe Building, will play host to some of the best contemporary furniture, lighting and product design brands from the UK and around the world.
Platform : With its unique, architectural setting at The House of Detention, sponsored by W London - will provide the perfect atmospheric backdrop for emerging young designers to exhibit their exciting new collections.
Detail: Celebrates fine quality and exquisite craftsmanship in the luxury sector, at the Order of St John bringing together the best and most prestigious names in high-end interior design.
Additions: New to Clerkenwell, sponsored by Spanish online design company Triitme - will take over the Crypt on the Green at St James Church. It will be the main hub for a curated collection of small design items and home accessories, targeting retail buyers, interior designers and specifiers.
