It's one of the hottest events in the design industry calendar, but Clerkenwell Design Week isn't just for design experts – now in its sixth year, the three-day event has become a mainstay in any design enthusiast's diary.

Free to register, the event is spread across London's Clerkenwell district; a bustling hub of design showrooms, architects offices and cool café culture. The show's four main exhibition spaces will be jam-packed with a huge range of inspiring products, from lighting and furniture to cutting-edge materials and accessories.

Plus, there will be interactive installations around the streets of Clerkenwell and discounts and offers from participating eateries dotted around the area for a well-earned pit stop.
