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.
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 2019, the design community flocked to Clerkenwell with 34,185 attendees and over 300 exhibiting brands.
CDW made its creative comeback last month and was bigger and better than ever before! The show celebrated its 13th year with over 400 events, 150+ showrooms and 10 exhibition venues to explore. Visitors were spoilt for choice on how to spend their time at CDW as masses of people travelled to EC1 to listen in on topical talks at Conversations at Clerkenwell, visit the street sculptures and artistic installations and explore all that CDW 2022 had to offer!
