Clerkenwell Design Week 2014 #CDW – roundup Part2

Continuing on our journey from the Farmiloe building of Clerkenwell’s Design Week (#CDW). We stroll up St. Johns Street passing and occasionally dipping in to see the open shop office and retail spaces encouraging us in to see their delights on the way.

Over at the Details exhibition at the Order of St John was a lovely collection of favourites and new rubbing shoulders and a pavilion outside (more later).   We were treated to a full new set of products first seen at Milan from our lighting friends at OCHRE.

This gorgeous single light called Celestial Pebble looks like the tip of the glass holds the the light source, but it’s a clever trick of the glass. Stunning.

A new find for us was Marion Labbez. She is reinvigorating the art of verre églomisé  (guilded and decorated glass)  art by injecting her contemporary hand-drawn artistic twist to the delicate mirror designs.

We continue from the first article with the briefest list of discoveries:

Reclaimed, restored and resurrected! Tiles no less, from Bert & May add a detailed twist as the main attraction to a design.

Exquisite hand painted wallpapers from De Gournay as featured in the shooting gallery hall of Kit’s own Haymarket Hotel here displaying a delicate garden setting with hues of gold leaf flicking the birds out to grab your attention.

Briefly mentioned but worth a long linger at the OCHRE stand.  Decorex2013-Kit-Kemp-tour-HR-53 OCHREtriple-seed Decorex2013-Kit-Kemp-tour-HR-51 OChre OCHRE

On to Teasel England’s stand Kit smoothes a hand over the softest wools and dares us to not fall in love with the touch alone.

Kit enthuses that these retro seed packet designs on Ian Sanderson are set to become a trend setting style.

A bright magenta silk shade from Julian Chichester captured our attention like a beacon and brought our eye down to the vibrant ethnic-styled fabric armchair, which Kit caressed.
