Clerkenwell Design Week
20-22 May 2014

Dodging showers and basking in sunshine, I hopped from exhibition to another in trendy Clerkenwell for the final day of Clerkenwell Design Week.

Clerkenwell Design Week celebrated it's fifth year and yet again managed to deliver a visual feast to all.

It was a great day to catch up with familiar faces and discover some new and exciting design newcomers.

Here are some of my highlights from the day;

Design Factory

The Farmiloe Building, a Clerkenwell landmark, showcased plenty of eye catching leading furniture, lighting and product design.

It was great to catch up with Buster & Punch team, a London based interiors brand.

Lovely to see some fellow Scandi's being showcased too.
This contemporary Madison sofa is a new addition to the collection from Swedese.
With it's clean lines it works great both at home or in an office environment.

The industrial backdrop of the Farmiloe building was ideal for displaying these Orient copper pendants.

These clever light displays by Vibia caught my eye.  For me, they work as contemporary mood lighting as well as wall art.
You can easily create and configure your own design to suit your preferred space.

This quirky tea table was inspired by english afternoon tea and was a winner of London Design Festival Design 25 in 2013.
A great piece of furniture designed just for that specific task, a nice cup of tea.
