Clerkenwell Design Week 2016 | Tagged

This year for Clerkenwell Design Week we have collaborated with Andrew Baughen, the enlightened Vicar of St James' – a classic 17th century church on Clerkenwell Green, where he sees the potential of making his unique building available to the daytime residents of Clerkenwell – the creative workforce, and a place for the residential community to use as a resource.

The partnership will involve us installing a large central chandelier in the main space, a co-working environment and a kitchen all to be donated as permanent fixtures. 

The extraordinary volumes of this heritage site will allow us to demonstrate our new lighting and furniture products recently launched in Milan against a series of historic backdrops – the panelled wood of the 18th century vestry, the bare stone construction of the entrance hall and the huge volumes and stained glass panels of the main church providing us with a variety of design challenges unlike any other.

As the Church evolves and adapts to the new conditions of the 21st century, the opportunity of opening up to new audiences and unexpected collaborations becomes a necessity. For the design audience and the more permanent residents of Clerkenwell, we hope that a contemplative and spiritual space becomes more comfortable and accessible thanks to our small intervention.
