Clerkenwell Design Week has announced that its eighth edition will be taking place on 23-25th May 2017. As the annual focus for London’s leading design district, the festival has been modelled to reflect the unique nature of this vibrant and creative London hub. Following the success of last year’s event which introduced a new layout to over 34,000 visitors, 2017 will again play host to hundreds of design-led exhibitions, showroom presentations, talks and installations. Activities will run over 3 days, with unique exhibitions spanning north to south from Spa Fields down to Farringdon.

Clerkenwell Design Week has taken a bold new direction for the festival’s 2017 creative campaign. The new visual identity aims to bring to life the excitement behind one of the UK’s key design calendar moments.

Clerkenwell is a neighbourhood of fascinating history and character, with buildings such as St John’s Gate dating as far back as the sixteenth century. Today, these historic buildings mingle with contemporary apartment blocks, urban warehouse conversions and modern family homes like this one, available to rent just off Clerkenwell Green.

As James Turner, Sales Director at Dexters Clerkenwell puts it, "Clerkenwell is the high-end face of edgy east London, with its eclectic mix of loft style apartments, period homes and modern blocks within a commercial setting.
