CDW postponed to 2021

CDW postponed to 2021

After careful consideration and working tirelessly to explore all possible options, we have decided to postpone Clerkenwell Design Week until 25 – 27 May 2021. Postponing to next year means that we can secure CDW’s future, giving us time, as an industry and as a community, to come together and deliver an even better festival in 2021.

#DesignTogether community

Aldworth James & Bond

Aldworth James & Bond: #CDW has given us lots of great memories! One of our favourite times was working with the team to create ‘Order’ – a 3x5m installation in 2017 made from #CNC routed @coriandesign. Definitely one to remember!

Women in Office Design

Women in Office Design: The industry is going to miss Clerkenwell Design Week which has become a regular feature in our yearly calendar. The conversations and social meets really bring the entire community together. 

Haines Watts

Haines Watts: Looking back to this time last year @CDWfestival - what an amazing few days in sunny Clerkenwell... (also hoping Molly got her dog)


Sandford PR: We've been looking back at our previous @CDWfestival photos & the vibrant, creative event that is always has been....and WILL BE AGAIN 🙌🏼
