Integral to the festival are the local resident design showrooms, who partner with Clerkenwell Design Week every year, providing the festival with a stimulating programme of topic-led events including talks, workshops and product launches.
CDW 2015 has 4 different exhibition venues across the area, all showcasing different styles of furniture and brands. Design Factory, Detail, Additions and Platform- covering leading furniture, lighting and product design from around the world
Every year CDW presents new design projects and street spectacles, commissioned specially for the festival and featured prominently around Clerkenwell. Inviting some of the leading pioneers in the creative industry, these projects aim to push the boundaries of design, in terms of concepts, process and material capabilities.
Each year we work with some of the leading names in the architecture and design industry and beyond, as sponsors of our installations and more. These global names bring exciting ideas and opportunities to the festival.
