An insignt into Clerkenwell Design Week

This week at Set Visions our head of creative Jal has been feeding back inspiration and design news to fellow SV stylists (and now you) about her recent jaunt to Clerkenwell Design week. Clerkenwell Design Week showcases the best in past, present and future works of leading designers and architects. For 3 days the area of Clerkenwell is transformed into a cleverly curated, buzzing hive of design.

Heres Jal's lowdown and highlights from her visit.


This is Clerkenwell Design Week’s 7th year and I am delighted to have caught a glimpse of the future of design. I started my day at the, ‘Icon House of Culture’. This unusual industrial renovated space is the award winning club ‘Fabric.’ With its underground appeal and lack of natural light it was the perfect spot to play host to lighting design studios which includes EBB & FLOW, Bert Frank, Di Classe, Dare Studio and Haberdashery to name but a few.


As I walk through the buzzing streets full of creative eyes trying to find the ‘Detail’ zone, I am greeted by a 4.5 metre high structure nestled inside the historic, St John’s Gate. This structure was designed by ‘Flea Folly Architects’ collaborating with Dutch floorboard manufactures ‘Hakwood’ designed to create a moment of calm. Through the gate I entered a modern slated structure named, ‘Museum of Making,’ pavilion by ‘White Arkitekter,’ where a workshop of pendant punching was taking place.


I walked around to Clerkenwell Close and entered St James Church I could hear the soft sound of classical music echoing through the structure. British Designer Tom Dixon curated the space as co working space and restaurant. The beautiful stain-glass windows and traditional features of the church set against the perfect atmosphere to worship great design.


In my short time at the design week I had the pleasure of listening to a seminar, ‘Digital in design: exploring new possibilities’. The discussion was about how 3D printing is transforming the way brands produce design and what future effects it will have. Being from Set Visions this was something that is pivotal to our future.


I saw and absorbed as much as I could on my jaunt. The great thing about this festival is that is has over 100 designer show rooms in 2.5sq miles. It is a warm inviting event that opens its doors to normally off limit areas and welcomes the viewers to see the studios and workshops where great designs have taken place.

Big Things Start from Little...

Whilst we’re not ones for drinking on the job, a recent studio shoot was a little tempting. The innovative idea from Little Tipples is to get people talking about and drinking better spirits.

They're about quality over quantity and variety over monotony, a little like our studio photography.
