Clerkenwell Design Week 2013

Hello everyone, it’s been a billion years since my last post [well, two months actually] but in that time so much has happened! It’s been a busy, fruitful couple of months and I’ve spent that time trying to recuperate after my stint at Meet The Blogger. I also spent the last two months assessing some person goals & aspirations I’ve set myself for the remainder of the year (all will be revealed later in the year – promise)! 

But the good news is… I’m back! I love to write and could not leave my blog, let alone you guys – my lovely readers. So with that said, what better way to pick up from where I left off then with my report on Clerkenwell Design Week 2013.

Did any of you get the chance to go? I managed to grab a few spare hours to have a look round and this year CDW didn’t disappoint. What I love about this show is that you get to see new, raw talent. It’s not overly commercial & gimmicky as some of the more well known shows tend to be. 

CANTEENIf you saw my review from last year I reported on the CANTEEN’s pop up restaurant. This year they’ve taken it up a notch with the traditional, iconic London Transport mobile canteen which made its debut at the show.

 

MAGIS: Some of my highlights from the show were this gorgeous, sleek, wicker style chair. Design by Marcel Wanders for Magis the wood tones really compliment the high gloss bod. I can totally see this as a nice dining table set or even a cosy workstation chair in a crafting studio.

 

LIGHT YEARS:Next on my list is the Paharaoh Light design by Hulger for Light Years. A wonderful piece of design, I like its simplicity and elegance. Giving a mirror-like reflection when switched off, this light is the perfect compliment to a chic, sleek dinning area, hallway or loft-style kitchen.

 

VG&P: Last but by no means least, one of my gem discoveries at CDW were these deliciously retro canteen utility chairs. Reminding me of my primary school days, what I love about these chairs are the bright pops of neon and dark tones of navy. Although many of these types of chairs have been on the market, this particular design stands out from the creative crowd.

What are your favourite finds? What did you think of CDW this year?
