May 29, 2019
On the 21st to the 23rd of May, Clerkenwell Design week celebrated their 10th anniversary. CDW is a 3 day celebration of the creative design community, in the central hub of design that is Clerkenwell, London. Featuring established brands and upcoming designers, CDW allows designers to present their new products and intriguing exhibitions in an exciting area of London.
We were lucky enough to venture over to Clerkenwell that week to visit showrooms, attend some talks and explore the exhibitions CDW had on offer.

Andreu World collaborated with LAYER to create the Hula Stool. Designed with the idea of simplicity, Hula honours this idea by retaining a minimal circular element that provides symmetry. Andreu World’s first height adjustable stool possess’ a social element as the stool encourages user engagement, by maintaining a minimal design and accessible form.
Benjamin Hubert gave an inspiring discussion about how he came up with the idea and how he believes designers should encourage calm and simple design to allow designs and products to become timeless.
