From 23 to 25 May 2017 the Goldsmiths’ Centre in the heart of Clerkenwell will be celebrating iconic designs, processes, materials and techniques as part of the eighth edition of Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW), the UK’s leading independent design festival.
Working in partnership with London based design companies, the Goldsmiths’ Centre will present The Serendipity Studio, an environment where visitors can attend drop-in demonstrations and talks on design innovation and find inspiration relevant to their industry. Created for CDW and to mark the Goldsmiths’ Centre’s 5th Birthday, visitors will also get to see a striking installation on the building’s façade, symbolising creative collaboration across design disciplines.
This year’s CDW programme at the Goldsmiths’ Centre is the result of a collaboration with five design companies who met just 5 months ago. The group includes a group of architects, structural engineers, a materials library, a bespoke bike designer and former jeweller, an engine turner and a 3D printing studio.
Over the three days The Serendipity Studio will be host to SCIN, Hartley Cycles, Reynolds, The Society of Ornamental Turners, Scale Rule, Digits2Widgets and Jailmake who will present their latest design solutions and lead drop-in discussions and demonstrations on how accidental connections, discussions and collaborations can be the starting point for many iconic designs.
Visit The Serendipity Studio from 23 to 25 May 2017 from 10am to 5pm. To register and book tickets for the talks programme, click here.
