Tempted to challenge the traditional sources of inspiration of Romanian design and yet attracted by its most viable ideas, the Romanian exhibition at the spectacular Clerkenwell Design Week (24-26 May) is a seductive commentary on destruction and renewal, on forgetfulness and reinvention. Attuned to the trade’s latest cries, the Romanian artists offer a vivid illustration of the contemporary reactions to tradition and the often original response to the dominant poetics of forms and space.
Featuring: Atelier A4 – Adina Segal; Alexandru Ioniţă; Bulb27 – Andrei Ignia; Ciprian Manda; De Ceramica - Mădălina Teler; Maria Decu & Mihai Dumitrache; Ubikubi – Dragoș Motica.
The Romanian participation in the Clerkenwell Design Week is organised by the Romanian Cultural Institute in partnership with Halima Habil and dizainar.ro.
Clerkenwell is home to more creative businesses and architects per square mile than anywhere else on the planet, making it truly one of the most important design hubs in the world. To celebrate this rich and diverse community, Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW) has created a showcase of leading UK and international brands and companies presented in a series of showroom events, exhibitions and special installations that take place across the area. Celebrating its 7th year in May 2016 (24-26) 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 2015, the design community flocked to Clerkenwell with 35,414 attendees and over 300 exhibiting brands.
