Clerkenwell Design Week's installations, product launches and exhibitions have been announced ahead of the sixth edition on 19-21 May.

CDW is one of the most respected events in the design calendar – over 32,000 attended in 2014. More than 60 showrooms will be involved including new participants such as Carl Hansen & Søn, and returning brands Vitra, Arper, Knoll and Domus. Camira, Humanscale and Bene will be launching products at CDW.

The public installations for CDW Presents are a much-anticipated feature. Furniture maker Sebastian Cox and sculptor Laura Ellen Bacon, supported by the American Hardwood Export Council, are collaborating on a three-metre high wooden arch featuring a steam-bent frame and weaved strips under St John’s Gate. Meanwhile, architects Cousins & Cousins and Gx Glass have designed a multi-coloured, jewellike pavilion (pictured) for St John’s Square. And look out for street art from Swiss design studio Gruppe, Monotype and Johnson Tiles.

CDW’s four themed exhibitions will be back (see article: Design in a Dungeon, for more on the historic venues). At Design Factory, Pinch will launch its Avery barstool, while Platform will feature contemporary fabrics from African design company MaliMali. Register online for free entry.
