Clerkenwell Design Week 2016

Clerkenwell Design Week 2016

The seventh edition of Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW) will be held May 24-26, 2016. The event promises to be the best and most ambitious yet, as new locations, brands and installations join this vibrant festival in one of London's most idiosyncratic and creative quarters.

In a first for the festival, organizers have appointed architecture practice OMMX to create a strategic masterplan for the event. The plan marks a significant point in CDW's development, with the format expanding to eight exhibition venues, a gateway destination to Clerkenwell's showrooms, an installation trail and a brand new destination at Spa Fields.

The new, integrated approach to planning the festival across both the temporary (exhibitions and installations) and the permanent (showrooms and fringe) will improve the flow and navigation around the many and varied elements, creating a compelling experience for the visitor as they explore all that Clerkenwell has to offer.

"We have worked collaboratively to realise an ambitious and exciting new chapter in CDW's history," commented Hikaru Nissanke and Jon Lopez, Directors of OMMX. "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."
