Clerkenwell Design Week 2017

Last week, London was host to Clerkenwell Design Week 2017, which boasted over 200 architectural and design studios, showrooms, and workshops. Thanks to the now annual festival, (2017 was CDWs’ 8th year), the Clerkenwell area of central London is currently considered a creative hub.

The event itself showcased an array of new products from the UK across its eight main exhibition spaces.

Have a flick around the different exhibition themes showcased last week here.
