For three days each May, EC1 reaffirms its place as one of the most important design hubs in the world. This year sees the launch of the seventh Clerkenwell Design Week, drawn within new boundaries that will embrace public spaces, local businesses and the work of 120 individual design studios. Brewhouse Yard will be transformed into a central spine that will lead visitors through the heart of the festival from Exmouth market to Smithfield, courtesy of resident architects Studio Egret West and BDP.

External installations, ‘Conversations at Clerkenwell’, conceptual displays, collaborative projects, over 85 studio openings, new releases and a dedicated platform for British design in the main spaces will be supported by a ‘Fringe’ programme that will see a further 25 businesses open their doors to visitors. Open from 24th to 26 May 2016, this is the hottest design ticket of the year.

Walk through our ‘Top five to Thrive’...

Local: Tom Dixon
Notting Hill’s own uber designer turns his hand to flooring in a project collaboration with commercial flooring brand Ege. Seven designs reference the urban landscape including smoke, brick, crack and blur which meddle the beautiful somber colours of the city environment with patterns created by general deterioration.

Off the wall: Archie Proudfoot 
North London based gold leaf artists and sign writer extraordinaire Archie Proudfoot will decorate the walls of the former House of Detention, the location for this year’s ‘Platform’ area of the show, with his incredible designs, learnt the traditional way through crafted wood blocks.

Outdoors: HASSELL and HÅG present Sensorium  
Design practice HASSELL and seating brand HÅG, will embrace the outdoors/indoors with a journey through an urban pleasure garden, contrasting the absurd and the real in a transformative, fantastical sensory environment.

Sustainable: HakFolly
Dutch wood flooring company Hakwood has sponsored FleaFolly Architects to create a 4.5m high monastic structure within the confines of historic St John’s Gate. Referencing Clerkenwell’s rich monastic past the structure illustrates the beauty, strength, durability and inherent quality of the timber boards as a piece of architecture.
