Clerkenwell Design Week, 24th – 26th May 2016
For this its seventh edition Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW) will be an even more exciting showcase as they have asked the architecture practice OMMX to create a cohesive master plan. It is designed to provide an easier approach to the temporary and established showrooms and an installation trail. OMMX’s directors – Hikaru Nissanke and Jon Lopez sum it up saying: ‘We have worked collaboratively to realise an ambitious and exciting new chapter in CDW’s history. We are grateful for the organiser’s enlightened approach in continuing to commission young practitioners, their desire to make a lasting contribution and to make design more accessible in this critical part of creative London.’
Brewhouse Yard will provide the entranceway to the showrooms of Clerkenwell’s new look with a central spine running northwards from Smithfield to Exmouth Market so that visitors can easily find the eight temporary exhibition spaces as well the showrooms. The show’s sponsors Renault will have environment focused display on Design Fields at the northern end.
