Never to early to give a heads up about a sound event. Clerkenwell Design Week 2011 kicks off on May 24, 2011 and will include a mixture of cutting edge talents and established voices in the design field. The latest product and design from 50 of the UKs top firms will be highlighted. New to this years event is The House of Detention venue – a subterranean Victorian prison hidden in the heart of Clerkenwell. Not usually open to the public, this unique space will house site-specific installations and innovative product displays for the duration of CDW. Exhibitors include; Timorous Beasties who will be showing a series of brand new lace material patterns designed for modern architectural spaces; Multi-award winning illustrator Lizzie Mary Cullen whose unique style has been spotted by Harvey Nicholls and Italian restaurant chain Zizzi. She will be treating visitors to live drawing and interactive workshops; Bark Furniture will be launching two new additions to its Acorn Collection, The Sideboard and The Chest of Drawers; Design duo Steffen Ringelmann and Vibeke Arnt-Jensen who established The RAD Gallery, which is devoted to showcasing emerging art and design talent will be launching their latest UK enterprise with an exhibition celebrating the work of lighting designer Dari Bae and her handmade chandeliers.
