of Meccano Home furniture. Launched in 2014, the Meccano Home
furniture range is easily formed using 21 assembly parts, which are
available in a range of 9 long-lasting paint colours. Each of these
modules allow the user to construct a range of living room furniture that
is entirely adjustable in size, concept and colour as lifestyles and needs
change. Their new range of outdoor furniture will also be seen at the
show.
Holloways of Ludlow’s colloborative kitchen design in partnership with ‘Concrete LCDA’ will also be on display at the show for
the first time in the UK. Designed by Richard McGee, Senior Designer at Holloways of Ludlow, the kitchen includes a striking
over-sized island unit that has been designed using a single piece of authentically raw concrete developed at their workshop.
New sculptural objects from Concrete LCDA’s ‘Multifacet’ collection, which have been designed by their in-house Artistic
Director Matali Crasset, will also be introduced to the UK. This new series of four facetted objects show a superb blend of
polished concrete, bright pewter, warm brushed brass and soft copper interiors that have created a single stem vase, candleholder, display shelf and champagne bucket, which have been further enhanced by French specialist metal smiths, Orfèvrerie
d’Anjou and masters of leather-work, Domeau & Pérès.
Concrete LCDA will also showcase their new, easy to install, Panbeton® ‘Modern’ wall panel designed by Parisian designers,
Ich&Kar who specialise in visual effects. This new ‘Modern’ range of wall panels for Concrete LCDA were inspired by two iconic
styles - the 1930’s and the “optical art” era
of the 1960’s. The result is a bold, yet simple, wall panel design that links the past
with contemporary design and forms part of their Panbeton® range of custom-made wall panels that fit into a range of
domestic and commercial design projects.

About The Event: One of the best-loved events in the design industry calendar, Clerkenwell Design Week is a three-day annual festival
gathering Clerkenwell’s long-established design community together. Now in its fifth year, the event has increasingly become a must go-to
showcase for the UK and international design community. In 2014, 32,300 visitors attended the festival; in total 57% of the visitors were architects
and designers, a 10% increase to 2013.
The name Clerkenwell comes from the Clerks’ Well in Farringdon Lane, where London parish clerks performed the famous Medieval Mystery
Plays throughout the Middle Ages. Since the Industrial Revolution, the area has housed craft workshops, printers, clockmakers and jewellers.
Traditional crafts, such as printing and bookbinding still flourish, as do graphic designers. In the last two decades, Clerkenwell’s unique variety
buildings have been transformed into central studio and workshop spaces, attracting an unprecedented concentration of architectural,
design and creative practices.
The global businesses that have made Clerkenwell their home have shaped the borough into the UK’s most important generator of creativity
and innovation. Serving an infinite variety of other industries easily accessible from across London, Clerkenwell has become home to a
plethora of new media agencies, graphic and interactive design studios and more than 200 architectural practices - more per square mile
than anywhere else on the planet. In addition, Clerkenwell houses over 60 design showrooms including world leaders Vitra, Poltrona Frau, Knoll
and Steelcase.
