Clerkenwell Design Week 2024 Highlights

The 13th edition of Clerkenwell Design Week didn’t disappoint with a positively ludicrous foray into sustainable and artful products.

The trend that stood out most was a move towards wood in standalone and structural products—even faux wood. Glass and translucent plastics also featured heavily, brought to life by intricate lighting and colourful backdrops.

The event was a treat for lovers of accessible work booths, glass-fronted mobile offices, recycled plastics, free-form armchairs, and sculptural lighting. It brought genuine galore to the minimalist style so many of us love.

A few standouts:


mobili clerkenwell 2024

The Mobili Chameleon Armadillo brings accessibility to in-office collaboration, seating two, four or six people with an optional integral table, and you can even specify a closed or open back for positioning against a wall or freestanding.


elite office pods clerkenwell 2024

Elite’s Host Pods deliver a walk-in sound-absorbing work and privacy space with motion-sensitive LED lighting, a touch control dimmer, universal power sockets, and USB charging points for complete comfort.


arrow group clerkenwell 2024

Arrow brought colour to meeting rooms with the Havana, a gorgeous collection of meeting chairs and stools available in seven colours, with black, white, or chrome legs and a wide range of fabrics to tie into your décor.


jdd roofed dens - clerkenwell 2024

JDD’s Roofed Dens—or mobile office collaboration pods—come in two, four, and six-seat configurations with acoustic ratings up to 32dB for privacy. For solo productivity, you can choose a phone booth or work booth pod.


sixteen3 clerkenwell 2024

Sixteen3’s use of recycled plastics knows no bounds, with their latest collection of coffee and side tables getting the recycled PET treatment and aluminium or wooden legs – an excellent addition to any eco-friendly meeting space.


allsfar blom - clerkenwell 2024

The AllSfar Blom is an exciting planter made from Öra PET acoustic felt containing at least 60% recycled PET and available in 26 colours. It contains no formaldehyde and emits low VOCs with a high-strength formulation to ensure reusability.

Another top pick from the show from AllSfar is a stone-effect PET wall panel, perfect for giving interior spaces a touch of industrial flair.

Top trends

Inclusive design practices

We saw plenty of open office pods, accessible seating, and vision-aiding designs, with a clear focus on creating more user-friendly spaces.

Natural materials

Wood was the big one—there was SO MUCH WOOD—and we love that because it’s perfect for Scandi and minimalist interiors. Even the faux stuff looked good.

Glass and aluminium

Glass and aluminium work pods —like those from Elite—proved very popular among businesses looking to segment their offices.

What’s next?

Clerkenwell Design Week 2025 will be even bigger than 2024’s extravaganza. We expect the products and showcases to adopt a cleaner, simpler aesthetic, focusing on ‘less is more’—think slimline chairs and more translucency than ever.
