Design Undefined #3: What to expect

Variety is the spice of life! Isn’t that what they say? As we look toward the upcoming Clerkenwell Design Week and the launch of Design Undefined #3, that’s definitely what we’re celebrating. Returning to its home at multi-faceted design destination Clerkenwell London, the third instalment of Design Undefined reflects the values of exploration and border crossing creativity we all embrace as lovers of the industry and people within it. 

In-keeping with Design Undefined’s tradition of breaking convention and blurring boundaries, master of graphic design Anthony Burrill is set to collaborate with Michael Marriott on a “room within a room”. Briefly put, this includes a unique range of furniture built from screen-printed plywood, with individual pieces available to buy during the show. Additionally, a vast array of Anthony’s prints will be shown alongside his recently launched book MAKE IT NOW!

Toying with our reality, genius designer and artist Jordan Söderberg Mills’ perception-altering installation in the Keep will use light, colour and mirrored surfaces to disrupt the distinction between the subject and their surroundings. The globetrotting designer recently spoke candidly in an interview with us about his creative path and mistakes he’s learned from — well worth grabbing for a chat if you get the chance!

A favourite Zetteler discovery from this year so far has to be ALUSID. The sustainability focused brand will showcase astonishing architectural surfaces and furniture, made from landfill-salvaged
waste. Presented against a dramatic backdrop of their source material – a mountain of broken TVs and ceramics, ALUSID’s sustainable beautifully colour-flecked SilicaStone draw all eyes to Clerkenwell London’s central plinth.

Alex Booker’s woodcuts exploring the history and characters of Clerkenwell in portraits, landscapes and text-based pieces will command your attention and provide fascinating, character driven context to the venue. He will also create a limited-edition work available exclusively from Clerkenwell London that will be put together during the course of the exhibition in the main retail space.

Alex Booker will present works that look at the colourful history of Clerkenwell.
It wouldn’t be Design Undefined if visitors weren’t given the chance to get hands on with the exhibitors! For the duration of the exhibition, Clerkenwell London also plays host to workshops and demonstrations from Design Undefined’s participants, while the venue’s urban spa The Well provides 10-minute “pit-stop” massages from noon each day – a welcome respite from the frenetic pace of Clerkenwell Design Week.
