Clerkenwell is home to
more creative businesses and architects per square mile than anywhere else on
the planet, making it truly one of the most important design hubs in the
world. To celebrate this rich and diverse community, Clerkenwell Design
Week has created a showcase of leading UK and international brands and
companies presented in a series of showroom events, exhibitions and special
installations that take place across the area.
Celebrating its 9th year
in May 2018 (22-24) the award-winning* CDW has firmly established itself as the
UK’s leading independent design festival and annually attracts the
international design community to this small area of London for three days of
exciting events. In 2017, the design community flocked to Clerkenwell with
34,128 attendees and over 300 exhibiting brands.
