eporta Spotlights at CDW 2018

Shining a light on some of our favourite stands at Clerkenwell Design Week 2018.

Having partnered with Clerkenwell Design Week for the last two years, we were so excited to come back for a third, and it didn't disappoint! With over 150 exhibitors to see, across 7 venues and 100 showrooms, the design inspiration is endless. It's no wonder then that the festival welcomes over 30,000 designers, architects and consumers every year.

Short but sweet, this three day fair is a brilliant showcase for suppliers from around the world. With several eporta suppliers exhibiting this year we couldn't miss the opportunity to walk around, camera in hand and say hello. Here are some of our favourite 'eporta spotted' pictures from Clerkenwell 2018:

British Collection

Benchmark had prime position at The Crypt on the Green venue. Vaulted ceilings and tree covered walls highlighted the clean lines and architectural nature of the Benchmark's designs. Featured in the image above are the Gleda High Chair and Gleda Coffee Table, both available on eporta.

John Green displayed their beautiful collection of chairs at the British Collection. Featured here are the Otis Dining Chair and the Otis Stool. The simple lines and Nordic style were really offset by the dramatic backdrop.

Hand & Eye CDW 2018 (76).jpg

Hand & Eye Studio bought their wonderful collection of tactile terracotta products, along with new pastel coloured porcelain pendant lights to display in The Crypt. Discover more here.

Deadgood CDW 2018 (80).jpg

Deadgood's display injected a serious burst of colour. The rainbow effect of the chairs was really eye catching. You can shop their products here. Deadgood also launched their first UK showroom during CDW, stop by for a visit.

Tacchini and Roger Lewis explored the use of colour within their displays. Predominantly designed for a contract audience, they both highlight that commercial properties and offices are adopting a playful style, using bold colours and exaggerated shapes.

Another Country displayed their beautifully paired back collections across two stands, one focusing on the AC Work Series and the other on their core collection. As always the materials used were outstanding; simple woods and butter soft leathers. Have a look at their collection here.

Detail

Located in The House of Detention, these products commanded attention. Flaskee's lights are made from vegetable husks, proving that sustainable design can be beautiful. John Eadon's unique MIMA shelving system is modular in nature, meaning you can customise it to suit your needs, adding on bits whenever the time calls for it. Rhubarb London's products speak for themselves with their fun, imaginative and theatrical aesthetic.

Casa Botelho CDW 2018 (24).jpg

Casa Botelho's bold and eclectic stand really stood out for us. Geometry and tactility were the key messages, bought together with splashes of bright cobalt. Discover more from Casa Botelho here.
