CDW 2012: Highlights Captured in Photos, Pen, Paper, iPad

CDW 2012: Highlights Captured in Photos, Pen, Paper, iPad

As part of our Postcards from Clerkenwell activities during Clerkenwell Design Week 2012, we encouraged people to share their views of this lovely area, either what the area meant to them, or what they’d seen during CDW2012, or just what they were feeling that day. Since we wanted to celebrate Clerkenwell’s creative past and present — and future — participants had their choice of materials: from photography to pen and paper to iPads, with Bamboo Styluses, designed for drawing on touchscreens, kindly provided by Wacom.

The Farmiloe Building

Clerkenwell Design Week 2012
The stunning Farmiloe Building, a Victorian warehouse turned movie set and event venue, was a standout for many CDW2012 visitors, particularly the car installations by sponsor Jaguar and Beau McClellan’s stunning Eclipse chandelier.

The Eclipse chandelier by Beau McClellan Design was eye-catching from ground level but even more alluring when viewed up-close from the higher floors of the Farmiloe Building. According to the designers, the modular lighting installation featured more than 200 individual mirror-coated Eclipse pendants.

Coming upon the Spring Forest installation in St James Churchyard was a pleasant surprise. A collaboration between Draisci Studio and Fulton Umbrellas, it was such a cool — in many ways — respite from the heat and activity of the festival.
