My favourite today : Ondaretta

 Spanish furniture brand Ondaretta have a beautiful collection in contemporary hues and clean lines. Using raw materials and inspired but the surfaces, that adapt to our shape and movement, like sand on a beach.  The way their furniture is configurated aims to bring people closer together, establish links and strengthen relationships... bringing charm and comfort to meeting and facilitate conversations. 

A creative collection for creative types -  I'm feeling inspired!

A great woman that has changed design history - Zaha Hadid. 

For CDW, Fritz Hansen collaborates with the famous architect's gallery to present "Shaping Reality Through Time" -  an exploration of design evolution -  showcasing a whole range of iconic chairs by the Danish brand. A highlight:  Jacobsen's Series 7 chair, reinterpreted by ZHD 2015. 

Just gorgeous!

One of this years strong themes... here's my favourites: 

1. Carmen Lyngard

From Stoke on Trent, the modularity of these custom made ceramic crafted lamps is impressive.

2. 3. Kei Tominaga

She likes to sheet metals, especially soft metals such as silver, gold, copper and iron. 

I love the purity of her work that reflects her sensibility and Japanese culture. She manages to find the true essence of form.

4. Hermine Doublon 

We found a Frenchie!  I love this  ceramic tableware collection because they are as delicious to look at as I imagine they are to eat from.

5. Gwendoline Porte 

She was inspired by railway tracks to create multiple modules that can be used in lots of different way for furniture. 

Let's get creative!

Looking for inspiration in London?

Here’s a few ideas of who to follow this week -  leading designers and journalists in the industry.

Find out what they are up to during Clerkenwell Design Week so as not to miss a trick.

Come and say bonjour!

Stop by KIOSK by 14 Septembre, a new French design destination during Clerkenwell Design Week. We’ve brought you an innovative selection of our agency’s interiors clients from across the channel: Made in France lighting, furniture, tableware and material manufacturers from the likes of Sammode Studio, Maiori, Gien, Maison Fragile, Ober Surfaces and CELC - The European Confederation of Flax And Hemp.
Come and meet our London team and discover a selection of nouvelle vague petites maisons, classic greats and gallic savoir-faire.

Where to find us

Walk 5 minutes from Farringdon station, or jump off the bus at St John Street, and you’ll find us on the corner of Clerkenwell Green, at number 20. Nestled right in the centre, we’re a stone’s throw from Clerkenwell Design Week’s Project and Elements exhibits. A happy coincidence, our So French!showcase is almost directly opposite the British Collection exhibit – so come and say hi (but don’t mention Brexit).
