Our Picks: Clerkenwell Design Week 2014

Tokyobike Tour

There are many reasons why Clerkenwell Design Week is where it is. One of them is that the area is steeped in interesting architectural history. Learn about it from expert and columnist Peter Murray as you ride alongside him on a Tokyobike, stopping at the area's landmarks and significant streets, such as Hatton Garden and Morelands, along the way. RSVP to [email protected] to book your place.

Tours start at 11:30 every day from St John's Square.

Design Factory: Farmiloe Building

This has been the keystone of Design Week from the beginning. Newly dubbed, Design Factory, you won't find anywhere as rich with exciting new global designs and designers all under the same Victorian roof. Look out for Foscarini, and Anglepoise's collaboration on a lamp with Paul Smith.
