Clerkenwell Design Week


Hardly a week goes by without there being some kind of specialist fair, conference or show. And yet finding an event that both caters to your existing interests and broadens your horizons can sometimes prove difficult. Thankfully this year's Clerkenwell Design Week looks set to be one of those rare occasions. Here are a few of the events that we're particularly looking forward to... DSCF7089 Forest & Found will take over the Corner Shop at Craft Central. The pop-up will display their hand stitched textiles (beautiful contemporary quilts) and wooden objects. There will also be a chance to see the duo at work, with demonstrations. Furthermore Craft Central – who have supplied affordable workspaces to designer-makers for more than 30 years – have opened their doors, allowing visitors to explore some of their talented makers and their studios. The Corner Shop, Craft Central, 21 Clerkenwell Green, EC1R 0DX Home carousel 2_0 Camira Fabrics "spin and dye yarn, grow bast fibre crops to blend with wool, and weave on over 100 dobby, jacquard and plush looms". It's unlikely that you haven't at some point been in contact with a Camira produced fabric as their clients range from London Underground to the University of Manchester. For Clerkenwell Design Week Camira will be "exploring the process of natural decay and corrosion with the preview of an exclusive printed fabric designed by luxury print designer, Torunn Myklebust." Camira’s Design & Development Manager, Catherine Counsell, will also be hosting two talks in the showroom on Tuesday 24th at 3pm and Thursday 26th at 11am, entitled Global Trends: evolution, continuity and change. Roubaix- exhibition 7_web The Swiss design and architecture company Vitra have developed a ‘Vitra Colour Lounge’ especially for Clerkenwell Design Week. The colour lounge will allow visitors to immerse themselves in "a celebration of colour and textiles" where rooms, furniture and atmosphere will be coordinated by colour. There will also be a mini seminar program, with titles such as 'How to design a museum' which will be fascinating for anyone at all interested in design on a larger scale. 'How to design a museum' will involve a discussion between the museum’s first Director, Stephen Bayley and its current Director, Deyan Sudjic. Wednesday 25 May 18.30 – 20.00 Clerkenwell Design Week 24-26 May 2016 BANNER
