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. Celebrating its 8th year in May 2017 (23-25) the award-winning 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.
