British-based furniture, lighting and accessory design company, Ochre, will host a special evening event with the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) to take place on Wednesday 23rd May (6PM-9PM) as part of Clerkenwell Design Week.
Located in the heart of Clerkenwell, on Britton Street, Ochre’s exclusive showroom opened in December 2011. This arresting space is a destination for those in search of discreet interior glamour. Ochre was founded in 1996 and has emerged as an international cult brand that continues to grow organically, whilst staying true to its considered and crafted design roots. At the BIID event designers will have the opportunity to see the influential Ochre collection first hand and appreciate the company’s aesthetic for the beauty of the understated and its emphasis on high quality materials, flawless British craftsmanship and technical virtuosity.
Designers will also have the opportunity to win an Ochre Arctic Pear Table Lamp in a special prize draw during the evening. The Arctic Pear Table Lamp features a patinated, bronze frame with a two tiered rim of solid clear glass drops and retails at £1710.
“Clerkenwell Design Week’s popularity continues to increase year after year,” says Diana Yakeley, BIID President. “It has become a prominent fixture in every designer’s calendar, and we are delighted to be supporting its programme of activities. We also thank Ochre for their support during this major international festival. The Ochre showroom is an arresting space and the perfect place to hold a stylish event during the design week. We look forward to an informative and entertaining evening.”
Clerkenwell is home to over 60 show rooms, a multitude of architectural and creative practices and provides the perfect location for this unique design festival. Back for its third year after a record number of visitors in 2011, Clerkenwell Design Week (22-24 May 2012) features an exciting, three-day programme of more than 150 events, pop-up exhibitions, installations, talks, performances, music and workshops, showcasing cutting edge design from some of the biggest names in the industry.
