At a time when supermarket shelves are empty, events are being postponed and the world is experiencing varying levels of uncertainty, there can be some degree of comfort knowing that we are all in it together.
Whether you're working from the spare bedroom, cooped up in the lounge or lucky enough to have a home office, we want to stay connected and most importantly... be positive.
Media 10 Design Division
You may (or may not) know that Clerkenwell Design Week sits within a portfolio of other leading architecture and design products that Media 10 has developed over the last 15 years. Alongside our sister show Design London, thought-leading publications and dynamic digital portals, we connect hundreds of thousands of industry professionals
and design enthusiasts around the world.
As a collective we want to do all that we can to bring the design community together, continue conversations, foster collaborations and provide content at a time when people are being encouraged to stay at home. We'll start by providing some free reading material with a copy of OnOffice magazine - especially for those of you that can't get to the office or showroom for their design magazine fix.
We also want you to get involved with our campaign #DesignTogether (more info below).

Here are a few examples we've received to kick things off:
For a creative person like me, working from home means working out doors. The forest is full of inspiration not only for myself, but keeps the kids occupied too. Nature calms the mind.
Hanna Laikola, Designer & Creative, Consultant from HEMLO
I like to add hygge to my workspace, especially when working from home. Candles, fresh flowers and music keep me grounded and calm especially during uncertain times like now.
Jessica-Christin Hametner, Editor, OnOffice
I'm currently set up to work from my dining room table, which fortunately means I'm surrounded by natural light and a view of the garden, providing occasional distractions from reality.
