The Vitra Christmas Market returns with a tempting array of gifts from London-based designer-makers as well as new editions of classics from Vitra, Belux and Falcon Enamelware. Open 5-22 December 2011 in Vitra UK’s beautiful Clerkenwell Road showroom, the market will donate 10% of sales to Shelter, the homeless and housing charity.
Creative Clerkenwell will curate a stall of design-led work from local designer-makers, featuring members of the Craft Central network, including jewellers Amanda Li Hope and Oxx Jewellery, interior accessories designer Michelle Mason, and ceramicist Jo Davies.
To round out our selection of highly gift-worthy products, we’ll be stocking CAFEAND‘s white marble objects, plus design books like London Design Guide, the Dezeen Book of Ideas and Interviews by Katie Treggiden.

Here’s what the market looked like last year:
Creative Clerkenwell is thrilled to be taking part! What a gorgeous setting for a Christmas market. And a big thank you to Vitra UK for inviting us — such an honour to show the work of small UK designers in the same setting as that of design legends like Ray & Charles Eames and George Nelson. I’m also really glad that sales will benefit Shelter again; last year, the market raised over £1,600 for the charity. Stay tuned, and check out the Vitra UK Blog for more news!
