With the arrival of the month of May comes the long awaited return of Clerkenwell Design Week. 2019 marks the 10th year of the event and is set to be a major celebration of one of London’s most vibrant districts. CDW has firmly established itself as the UK’s leading independent design festival, which each year attracts the international design community to this district. This creative event has flourished over the past decade and has been the catalyst for many design projects all over the world. Unfortunately it’s not always easy to attend the numerous design shows dotted across the world, but don’t worry, this month the team at INEX has endeavoured to collect and collate an abundance of creative projects to help inspire you.
From CDW in London we first travel to New York where Rockwell Group has just unveiled the new public spaces of Moxy Chelsea Hotel. The glorious space has been dubbed ‘a modern Secret Garden in New York City’s Flower District’, and Rockwell Group’s design schemes for the hotel’s restaurant, lobby and rooftop combine rich colours, materials and patterns that result in a series of whimsical yet luxurious interiors. Turn to page 76 to uncover the Big Apple’s big secret. On page 7, we go from one festival to another when Maurizio Pellizzoni unveils a Coachella inspired bijou split level London apartment full of soft pastel colours and a mixture of polished brass and chrome finishes. Finally we explore a textile collaboration where Persian artistry meets French tradition on page 46.
