Living in Clerkenwell does have its benefits, apart from it being a beautiful little place it also is the home of Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW), annually held at multiple locations throughout Clerkenwell. It’s now firmly established itself as the UK’s leading independent design festival.
This three day festival host’s an array of the world’s most notable design, architectural and creative names. One of my favourite locations used for CDW is the Farmiloe Building which is a ridiculously elegant former Victorian glass-works, which is the perfect backdrop for the exhibitors. Alexander McQueen also notably used the Farmiloe Building for one of its men’s collections in January.
Regardless, of this being a design festival and nothing to do with the usual stuff on the blog. I had to give it a mention as the level of craftsmanship and creativity that is visible here, is inspiring. Below is a selection of photographs of things that caught my eye.
