100% Design Week, London (18th-21st September) – Part 2

This is the other half of my photo diary of 100% Design. The different variation of design continues throughout as well as the use of colour.

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageI throughly enjoyed this year’s 100% Design week, especially being a part of it! I meet so many interesting and inspirational people and I hope that with this visit and experience helping out at the event, will help me within my uni course and help direct me into the career path the future holds for me!


100% Design Week, London (18th-21st September) – Part 1

This is my photo diary for the recent design show 100% Design. This event was on a couple of weeks ago and would have been uploaded earlier, but I have been battling an illness in these past weeks, so apologies for it taking a while to be posted. I was lucky enough to be part of this event by helping out with Belgium furniture company BULO on their stand and so this gave me a chance to wonder round and see all the other companies and designers displaying their work and ideas. It was a truly brilliant show, and had a fantastic turn out!

I have been attending this show for years, but this was the first year where I was able to take it seriously and was able to gather lots of inspiration and advice that can help me out on my future career/plans after I finish university!

Below are the first selection of images I took throughout my 4 day stay at the show.

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageThere was such a selection of different forms of design, and this year, it was nice to see it not be too dominated by furniture! Designers and illustrators really caught my attention with their use of colours, shapes and just general uniqueness! One aspect of this years event that I throughly enjoyed was the use of a lot more use of colour. At the entrance you were greeted by a light tunnel and within the show was a huge wall of light changing colour as well as different areas being highlighted with colour.

Clerkenwell Design Week Photo Diary – Part 3

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageToday was the final day of the festival, so I decided to take one last look around all the exhibition centres and showrooms to make sure I haven’t missed out on anything. One showroom I visited was of Camira Fabrics, where they were showcasing a coloration with textile designer Emma J Shipley with a new fabric called Titus and Tangled. Emma had produced a stunning pencil illustration of a famous Gorilla and the drawings was then produced onto fabric and then made into a chair and stool. The results truly are breath-taking.

One last visit to the main exhibition centre, Farmiloe building, where films such as James Bond and Batman are filmed, gave me a chance to just admire the architecture of the building. I have never known a building to have so much character!

All in all, I have had a fantastic week attending and being part of the Clerkenwell Design Week and I very much look forward to next years festival!

My Clerkenwell Design Week Photo Diary – Part 2

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageThese are the rest of the photographs of the Clerkenwell Design Week. I noticed throughout the week that the one thing I kept being drawn to, was Lighting. All the different shapes, colours and sizes were just crazy, nothing plain and dull!! One particular group of lighting I was drawn to was the fluorescent lights by┬áServomuto. Such an array of colours and images mixed together to create amazing lighting – truly inspiring!

My Clerkenwell Design Week Photo Diary – Part 1

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageThis week I have been down to London to look around and be part of the annual Clerkenwell Design Week. Clerkenwell is a well known festival where the successful companies in the world that work within the interior and architecture industry, showcase their products within their own showrooms or exhibition centres.

Throughout the week, I took my camera everywhere with me and took photos of things that really caught my eye and are a great source of inspiration!

(This festival was sponsored by Jaguar so there were some very gorgeous cars placed around the exhibition centre!)
