Yesterday evening we had a tour around the Clerkenwell Design Week – we just stuck to the four main exhibition hubs – (not enough time for everything!) – but there was plenty to see in just these four locations!
It’s the last day today (Thursday) – so get down there! Lots of stuff is open until 9pm : )
Our main reason for popping along was to see the beautiful work of Kirsty AKA Lovely Pigeon:
We also discovered some new things – took a few postcards:
Next up was a trip to the Platform exhibition – housed in the basement of the House of Detention – a former Victorian prison – what a great venue!
Unfortunately it was a bit dark to take any photos – but there are some of it when it’s empty on the Londonist website: House of Detention.
These catacombs were all full of recent graduates and young designers work; beautiful furniture, lighting, woven stuff, and lots of other techniques on show. Favourites included; A Rum Fellow, Robert Scott and DesignK’s Tea for one table:

This was high-end furniture and furnishings – all housed in a beautiful setting!
Lastly, it was off to St John’s Street to the amazing Farmiloe building for the Design Factory exhibition.
Here are some photos of that on the Londonist website: Farmiloe Building.
This exhibition was immense – a lot of beautiful furniture mainly, and also some retail spaces – amongst them; Theo (the shop brought to you by Thorsten Van Elten) and The Link Collective, both with a gorgeous selection of stuff!
Here are a few shots of the location:
