Clerkenwell design week’s chic sights

Clerkenwell design week kicked off yesterday. On St John’s Square, architects Cousins & Cousins have created a multicoloured jewel-like pavilion, “Glaze” (left), in collaboration with Gx Glass, a UK glass manufacturer. Another exhibition, WordPlay (bottom right), will see seven verbs suspended from trees, stacked on pavements, fixed to walls and crafted into furniture. The lightbulbs are part of a creation by Hastings-based retailers Dyke & Dean at the Farmiloe Building.
