Clerkenwell-Design-Week-London-07

This week, one of UK’s biggest contemporary design festival will fling open its doors to collectors, curators and the otherwise curious in their thousands in London, England.

The three-day festival will welcome more than 150 designers and manufacturers from Britain and across the globe, as they showcase their latest designs against the extraordinary backdrop of historic Clerkenwell.

Clerkenwell Design Week is now in its fourth year, the event has increasingly become a must go-to showcase for the UK and international design community.

This year shows some wonderful examples of fresh, colourful new designs being shown for the first time at Clerkenwell Design Week.  With Clerkenwell’s  rich  history of bringing the design industry together, the festival is the perfect platform for companies to showcase their new products.

Alongside the innovations shown by the festival’s many exhibitors and showrooms, Clerkenwell Design Week will present a series of curated installations and exhibitions under the banner Clerkenwell Presents. Challenging and inspiring the design community and visitors alike, these attractions have become an integral part of the three-day event, together with the Fringe events hosted by the numerous architectural, design and creative practices that make Clerkenwell the most important creative district in the UK.

Here’s Adelto’s Hot Picks:

Domus Tiles

As statement accessorising becomes increasingly clichéd, bold and expressive flooring, wall coverings and  surface  materials  are  a  leading  trend for 2013. Clerkenwell enjoys a plethora of showrooms at the forefront of this sector. The  stunning Domus Tiles showroom on Great Sutton Street will play host to Patricia Urquiola and her new tile range Azulej.

 Vitamin Living

Since Vitamin was set up in 2005 its mission has been to produce designs which are more than just a little out of the ordinary. These Knot Lamps are just awesome. The lamps come in two different designs of hand blown glass shade each supported by a monkey fist knot. The knots are tied from brightly coloured cable in a selection of 5 colours.
