The Beauty of 40 looked great during Clerkenwell Design Week27 May 2019
Clear skies and a parade of installations encouraged visitors to this year’s Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW) to wander the full event route. Playing a key role was Hakwood’s Candle: The Beauty of 40. In collaboration with Shape London, the Candle was designed to highlight Hakwood’s 40 year history and celebrate the people behind the brand. The Hakwood Candle had an illuminated core making the day and evening views ever-changing and unique.
Mixing mirror and Hakwood wood, each façade tells a different piece of the company’s story. Photos and facts printed directly on the prefinished wood squares sat beside reflections of visitors and surroundings. It made the Candle fit seamlessly into its location and the visitors joined right alongside Hakwood. A perfect representation for how collaboration often yields the best results. All topped with an illuminated 40 “flame”!
Celebrate the successes
Happy hour at BrewDog rounded out our 4th year at Clerkenwell Design Week. Hakwood local, Stuart Cherkas, joined some of our favorite UK creatives - including the team from Shape London- for craft beers and snacks. Our thanks to everyone who shared in our celebration and helped to make CDW2019 a great success!
