This year our Design Team attended Clerkenwell Design Week 2019. As well as hosting an abundance of furniture and interiors showrooms, Clerkenwell is also home to a variety of other creative practices including architects, branding agencies and craft studios. Clerkenwell aims to push the boundaries of design, in terms of concepts, process and material capabilities., and invites industry leading professionals to explore these possibilities. Take a look below at what we thought were the running themes of showrooms around Clerkenwell.

Living Coral…

…was a prominent theme throughout many of the showrooms this year. Mainly used in fabrics, the colour with its natural depth gave a warmth to the surrounding commercial environments. Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting work environment.

 

 

 

Biophilia…

…was a clear trend with many commercial environments incorporating the natural world into the workplace. With its obvious health and wellbeing benefits such as improved air quality and reducing stress levels, biophilic elements where typically seen in breakout spaces. This included everything from small desk plants to large moss walls.

 

 

 

Acoustic panels…

…were heavily featured this year at Clerkenwell. With the rise of open-plan office environments, and a boost in collaborative working there has also been an increase in the need for zones which offer a quiet space away from the busy office environment. This year we saw acoustic panels with equal levels of aesthetic appeal and acoustic qualities, therefore ideal for any commercial environment.

 

Palisades…

…were spotted in almost every showroom we visited this year at Clerkenwell. With undeniable benefits, the palisades allow you to create different zones instead of walls, therefore providing areas of separation within an open plan environment. Typically seen with metal frames, palisades offer a great storage solution and allows you to be creative and flexible with the design and structure.
