100% Creative

The ‘100% Design’ show took place at Olympia this September and was Clerkenwell Design Week’s sister event. This year, Clerkenwell has a particularly strong presence at the design show. There was not only plenty of EC1-based showrooms exhibiting throughout but also a special “Clerkenwell Presents” area, with product launches from local brands.

A new, secondary show called LuxuryMade also ran alongside the main event, in one of Olympia’s previously unseen venues: the striking Pillar Halls, once the UK’s first electric cinema.

We highlight some of the local talent that was on display.
