Clerkenwell Design Week 2015, now in its sixth edition, will showcase an array of newly commissioned projects, street spectacles and pop-up workshops, as part of its CDW Presents and Fringe series. Exclusive to the festival, these special features will be stationed prominently around Clerkenwell over the three days, created by a range of established and emerging names from both the design and architecture worlds. This year’s festival also sees the introduction of Icon’s House of Culture, a new location within The Old Sessions House on Clerkenwell Green, housing a collection of leading and culturally conscious furniture brands, interior companies, art and film pieces.
Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, comments, “From religion and radical politics to printing and beermaking, Clerkenwell has long been associated with ideas and production. Now it is firmly back on the map thanks to the dynamic cluster of high-quality creative and commercial businesses working there. This has been celebrated in grand style by Clerkenwell Design Week over the last six years, which brings together world-class design talent, original installations and memorable moments of inspiration in a myriad of unique spaces”.
