Clerkenwell Design Week 2017
The Beacon: Supported by the Perspex® brand
Clerkenwell Design Week 2017 is set to be the greatest yet, showing some of the festival’s most ambitious collaborative projects to date. One of which is ‘The Beacon’, located at the entrance to Design Fields, it is the tallest installation the event has ever showcased as part of CDW Presents.
The 7.5m-tall structure will be completely clad with a colourful grid of Perspex® acrylic panels; enclosing an internal staircase that allows visitors to climb up onto a viewing platform that overlooks where industrial Clerkenwell meets the historical.
The typographical design will include translations from over 80 different languages spoken by the people within the surrounding area; celebrating the internationalism of Clerkenwell and of the design industry as a whole.
Location: Spa Fields, Northampton Road, London, EC1R 0DF
