Clerkenwell Design Week 2015

Every year at AIR we get really excited about the “design energy” that happens around the Clerkenwell design district.

Our favourites this year included furniture pieces playing with textures and natural materials, from dyed veneer ‘coffee inspired’ coffee tables by Danuta Wlodarska to ‘Tectonics’ CNC milled stools by Aleksa x Vicki to the most unusual… Lucas Muñoz’s Living Stone chairs and Rock and Roll skateboards.

We felt the venues provided a very interesting backdrop to showcase the natural beauty of the materials used in many of the products on show this year. The uniqueness of the church crypt and underground prison made for a memorable experience!

Of most interest to us was the current trend in technology and furniture integration. Aircharge are at the fore, with their wireless mobile phone charging devices, currently being integrated into furniture in the hospitality and office environments. We think there is a real place for this kind of technology integration into shopping mall lounges and entertainment complexes of the future….watch this space!
