Clerkenwell Design Week 2014

Clerkenwell Design Week 2014

20 - 22 May '14

London

Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW) returned for its fifth year in 2014, having achieved record success last May.

For 2014, the traditional structure of the three-day festival has been re-curated into four focused exhibitions, housed in Clerkenwell’s most historic buildings. The Design Factory presented high-profile international brands in the Farmiloe Building; Detail showed high-end interiors and decoration in the majestic Priory Church at the Order of St John, and Platform showcased talented up-and-coming designers in the subterranean Victorian prison at The House of Detention. A new section, Additions took over the Crypt on the Green at St. James Church, exhibiting small design pieces and accessories.

Alongside four central venues, CDW’s showroom partners, integral to the festival, once more opened their doors to the public; showrooms, studios and galleries showcased the most innovative projects in architecture and design, whilst bringing the festival together by curating a series of talks, seminars and workshops with leading industry specialists.

As an annual three-day festival, CDW has consistently increased its influence and reach in the international architecture and design arena. In 2013, 54,000 visitors registered to attend – an increase of 50% on the previous year: 27% were architects and developers, 21% interior designers, 22% product designers and manufacturers, and 11% buyers and retailers.

Growing year-on-year, 2013 saw over 250 design brands exhibit across a series of pop-up exhibitions and open showrooms within the square mile of central Clerkenwell, from Erwan Bouroullec and Patricia Urquiola, to Giulio Cappellini and Ross Lovegrove. Over 35 countries were represented by exhibitors, while a 7% rise in international visitors (2012-2013) saw guests from over 100 countries attending the festival.

Now established as one of the key international design festivals, CDW was awarded Best Festival and Best Cultural Event by the UK Event Awards in 2012, and Best Live Event by AEO Awards in 2013.
