Clerkenwell Design Week took over the EC1 area of London for three days last week. Now in its fourth year it is gaining in popularity and becoming a not-to-be-missed event in the design calendar. It's also free, and open to anyone, you can just register on the day. The pink signs dotted about the place signify where, when and what is going on (see above).
Centred around the Victorian-era Farmiloe Building on St John Street, which is a temporary home for new products in contemporary design, the show works in partnership with local design showrooms (of which there are many in this area) and is hosted in two other excellent historical venues: the spooky House of Detention and the ecclesiastical Order of St John. Here are a few of the things I saw.
