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. Clerkenwell Design Week returns to the subterranean House of Detention, to introduce Platform, a show that recognises some of the world’s most exciting up-and-coming design talent. Exploiting the venue’s atmospheric architecture, Platform creates a stunning backdrop for a curated collection of international and cutting-edge design. Below we present some of the most exciting designs by from young designers and design talents you could see at Clerkenwell.
Simplicity, transparency and quality are the key foundations to Alex’s work, his understanding of traditional crafts and modern manufacturing technologies combined with good design give to his work a unique aesthetic that does not engage with trends nor fashion. From his studio in Hackney he concentrates on creating idea and process driven products & furniture of exceptional quality.
At this years Clerkenwell Design Week Alex launched a new tile design as well as some of his more established work.
