We’ve been enjoying Clerkenwell Design Week this week. The streets around the agency are buzzing with all sorts of well-heeled design folk and there’s an eclectic, almost holiday-like spirit in the air.
It’s the perfect time to enjoy a bit of people and trend watching. A short walk from the Purple Creative offices finds street table tennis tables and swinging playground-style seating being enjoyed by groups of friends. After all, who doesn’t love a bit of ‘kidulting’?
There’s a general carnivalesque vibe – largely because much of the lunchtime crowd have come here specially to visit the festival. Creative installations and trade exhibitors line the streets with fuchsia pink lanyards and balloons and the streets are lined with directional signage in, you’ve guessed it, pink.
London’s home of design inspiration
This is the tenth year of Clerkenwell Design Week, celebrating the best in interior design with a focus on just about everything from lighting to flooring, furniture, materials and textiles. It’s an inspiring place to be.
As part of our work here at our Clerkenwell design agency, we create brand books and develop interior spaces for the brands we work with, often in bars or outdoor spaces. So to have this all on our doorstep is fortunate indeed.
If you’d like to learn more about Purple Creative, please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
