The ACTIU events at Clerkenwell 2016

The Clerkenwell district has gained a reputation as one of the most dynamic creative areas in London, full of artisanal laboratories, design studios and showrooms. To celebrate this rich and diverse community, Clerkenwell Design Week has created a showcase of leading UK and international brands and companies presented in a series of showroom events, exhibitions and special installations that take place across the area.

Among the unmissable spots sits Design Fields, the area dedicated to contemporary design, located in the Spa Fields, which witnessed designs arriving fresh from Salone del Mobile. Among the 25 international brands on display there was also CAPDELL, which took the opportunity to present to the UK audience the latest seating collections signed by the Swedish multidisciplinary design/architecture office Claesson Koivisto Rune: CONCORD, PLUMP and the new launch, MIRÓ.

The MIRÓ chair, which was launched at the latest edition of the Salone del Mobile in Milan, was presented in its various configurations, with and without armrests and upholstered in different colours. This chair collection features a thin plywood or beechwood frame and slender metal legs, which come lacquered in different tones.

At CAPDELL they see chairs as a global designer product. Not only do they have to be stylish, they must also satisfactorily fulfil their function as a piece of furniture, pass ergonomics and resilience testing and, furthermore, look attractive and in tune with current trends.

EXPORMIM, a Spanish leading brand specialized in outdoor furniture, exhibited at the House of Culture, an area dedicated to the news from international design living located at the Fabric Nightclub. With innovation and craftsmanship as core values, the brand showcased in Clerkenwell a selection of their finest rattan pieces, such as NAUTICA, FONTAL, HUMA and FRAMES.

Integral to the festival are the local resident design showrooms, which partner with the Clerkenwell Design Week every year, providing the festival with a stimulating programme of topic-led events including talks, workshops and product launches.

The Actiu Showroom in London, located in the heart of the CDW was transformed into a studio where interior designers and architects could have a firsthand look at the brand’s new solutions for innovative work environments.
