KI, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of workplace and education furniture, will make its Clerkenwell Design Week debut in 2019 with a pop-up showroom at the landmark Paxton Locher House on Clerkenwell Green. This stunning home will be transformed into ‘KI House’ for the launch of several new UK-designed & manufactured seating, storage and workstation collections. There will also be a variety of talks, workshops and a ‘House Party’, co-hosted with Bute Fabrics, on the evening of Wednesday, 22 May (by invitation only).
Alex Gifford, KI’s design director will guide designers and specifiers through KI’s unique furniture co-creation capabilities for large office projects. Bute Fabrics and designer Natasha Marshall will help designers make a unique statement with co-designed, customised fabrics. Also on display will be a collaborative project with designer Freyja Sewell, who will share her valuable insights on working with felt. Architectural tours of the house will be hosted by the property’s owner throughout the festival.
