Clerkenwell celebrates its design heritage

A new festival is set to take place in May this year to celebrate design’s rich creative heritage, social relevance and technological advancements. Clerkenwell Design Week is to be held at the architectural hub of the city of London, Clerkenwell Village on 25th-27th May, 2010.

A wide variety of design firms are set to attend the festival, with exhibitions and installations from furniture to large scale architecture and shoe design to multimedia productions. Alongside these exhibitions from high profile brands such as Tom Dixon and MARK, will be seminars, workshops and debates to create a lively, thought-provoking discussion on a range of current design issues.

In an effort to provide a festival feel to this week-long event, Clerkenwell Design Week will be offering street entertainment, live music, food, and multiple parties. With over 2000 architectural practices in the local area and 60 design showrooms nearby, this event is set to be a huge creative networking opportunity. In continuation of the festival theme, the public space will be utilized by a range of outdoor installations. One of these displays will be created by Jonathan Batten, who is set to install ‘Sound Flower’, a series of multimedia sounds sculptures inspired by the architecture in St. John’s Square.

Another element of Clerkenwell Design Week will be a showcase of the latest products, developments and design innovations from over 50 British and international manufacturers, with Boss Design, Modus, Cappellini and TOTO named as confirmed exhibitors. Alongside this, multiple showrooms are set to stage exclusive product launches with speeches and seminars from high profile speakers and VIP parties to follow.
