Every year Clerkenwell is transformed into a humming hive of design. I was invited for a tour of the major sites and enjoyed seeing some of the clever furniture, interesting fabrics and bold installations. I could waffle on for ages about angles and post-modernism (sigh) for a while, or I could just show you some pretty pictures. Here you go:
I loved this cool installation, 'Glaze' by Cousins & Cousins in partnership with Gx glass. It was inspired by Venetian Murano glass
So pretty and colourful!
There were several sites around Clerkenwell that you could go and see - bit like a design-y treasure hunt of joy
Monotype put on an outdoor exhibition which "celebrated the way type design permeates and enhances our world." It looked really interesting...
...And you can use the first letter of your name as your profile pic - yay!
This was where that was
Love this bear by Jimbobart
Triangles - nice
Want if I ever own a house
Loves me a bit of macrame
Wish I was allowed more cushions in my house - they get in the way, apparently
I'm not allowed to draw on the walls either
Sponsored by Renault so there were cars there
This light was amazing
If you want your house to look like a circus
Or if you want your house to look like a garden from the inside
so colourful! Nice one Johnson's tiles
Things like this surrounded Clerkenwell, kind of like a Roman city
Such gorgeous folders and press info
Got such a thing about palms at the moment
Talking about perspex brains, probably
