Art, design, and solidarity at the Actiu Showroom at CDW18
Actiu is preparing a full program of activities ahead of the Clerkenwell Design Week in London, an unmissable event showcasing design, architecture, and products in the United Kingdom, taking place in the British capital from 22nd to 24th May.
Art, design, and solidarity take centre stage in the Actiu showroom, located at 28 Seward Street, Clerkenwell, in the shape of an art competition which has given life to a new style and uses for the Badminton chair. A meeting which invites London artists to rethink this piece of furniture both in terms of its form and function.
The three wining proposals will be unveiled on the 22nd and for three days visitors to the London showroom will be able to bid for them until the 24th May. The funds raised will go to Maggie's, a charity that offers emotional and practical support to people with cancer and their families.
Over those days, visitors will be able to discover the new range of Actiu products, as well as the work philosophy and practices the company applies to architecture and in its projects. Talent, the new hight-adjustable, folding, and easily stackable table, designed by Alegre Design for training areas, or Power, by ITEM Designwork, a desk that unites technology and a fresh look for workspaces will be brought together for the first time in a showroom featuring the Alicante company's main products.
The showroom combines design, functionality, and art in the FT2 exhibition. A sample, from the hands of Chrom-Art, a not-for-profit organization committed to supporting emerging artists, which explores art as a stimulant and catalyst for concentration in the workspace.
Design will not only be present in Artiu's products and showroom but also in the workshops organised for those days. In particular, on the afternoon of 23rd, a workshop will be held on hydroprinting, a method of applying printed designs to three-dimensional surfaces.
Another of the workshops, which will be held every day during the CDW, will be run by QB Space specialists who will highlight the benefits of "pods", closed glass structures which are installed in open-plan areas and meet all fire safety certificates and specifications thanks to their automatically-opening roofs. New temporary options which will soon be a must in closed, glass solutions for office spaces.
And of course, we can't forget the cuisine on offer as part of the Spanish firm's presence at CDW. On 23rd, from 12:30 to 2pm, Actiu's showroom will offer guests a delicious paella - both the traditional and vegetarian versions - to be washed down with Codorniu cava. A feast for all the senses.
But there's more. Over the three days of the Clerkenwell Design Week, there will be opportunities to sample a sumptuous selection of tapas, including the grand finale of the Badminton chairs art competition, where the winning bids will be announced and Maggie's invaluable charity work will be displayed.
