CDW 2015


Staff accompanied 72 Product and Interior Design students to Clerkenwell Design Week on Wednesday 20th May.

“Celebrating it’s 6th year in May (19-21) the award-winning CDW has firmly established itself as the UK’s leading independent design festival and annually attracts the international design community to this small area of London for three days of exciting events. In 2014, the design community flocked to Clerkenwell with 32,300 attendees and over 300 exhibiting brands.”

The visit was part of an ongoing programme of events planned to take students out of the studio to look at design and understand its place within the global market. The cohort were left suitably impressed and inspired by Clerkenwell’s mix of showrooms, exhibitions, installations and talks… buzzing with ideas and laden with brochures and catalogues.

Industrial Design Degree Show 2015
28th May – 4th June


Interior Design: Show One

The following images represent a small proportion of the outstanding work at our degree show, which opened last Thursday with a private view for guests from industry. This year’s exhibition features the best work from students graduating in Automotive, Transport, Product and (for the first time) Interior Design. The show has attracted many important visitors including representatives from Jaguar Land Rover, Sprue Aegis, Dyson and Bentley (to name but a few). Many of the students have received awards and offers of employment already…

Our continued affiliation with the Coventry Motofest drew further visitors in over the weekend. Cesar Pieri’s exhibition of painted Jaguar Bonnets at Fargo Village (a joint venture with ID) was also a success.

If you’re intrigued to visit the show, then do hurry, as it closes this Thursday. Details here:
