Maybe our claim is a little bold, but we truly believe things should be designed for sustainability. Design defines how material objects look and feel and how they are used.

Is contemporary design taking sustainability into account? Where better to look than at Clerkenwell Design week, the renowned design festival that brings together the latest innovations by some of the best creative forces and encompasses the true spirit of the design community.
