Clerkenwell Design Week
The ninth (CDW) takes place from May 22-24, 2018. As the annual focus for London’s leading design district, the festival program is created to reflect the unique nature of this vibrant London hub, home to a plethora of creative businesses, design consultancies, showrooms and architectural practices. Clerkenwell will again host hundreds of design-led fringe events, showroom presentations, workshops, talks and public-facing installations. Activities will run over three days and follow a distinct trail north to south from Spa Fields down to Farringdon. For 2018, CDW has commissioned Made Up studio to create an identity especially for the Festival. Integral to the festival are the local resident design showrooms, many of whom partner with CDW, providing an array of stimulating events from talks and workshops to major installations. There are seven exhibitions, each with a different curatorial focus, ranging from cutting edge international design, to emerging talent, lighting, luxury interiors and the best of British design.
