CLERKENWELL DESIGN QUARTER
clerkenwelldesignquarter.com; late night September 19.
WITH its cobbles and courtyards, EC1 is dense with architects’ offices and design showrooms. Ceramic workshops and demos are at carpet showroom Milliken in Berry Street to launch new book Urban Potters. There’s new design at Viaduct, and impressively sculptured concrete tiles at Porcelain Gallery, while Vitra in Clerkenwell Road celebrates the chair the modernists love, above — a little number with infinite variations designed by Charles Eames in 1950. Check out a serious talks programme.
