Parkside & Strata’s Clerkenwell Sustainability and Design Studio will be home to a full programme of activities during Clerkenwell Design Week. Attendees should also keep an eye out for the Parkside & Strata Pizza Truck which will be serving up slices of freshly cooked wood-fired pizza.
On Tuesday 24th May, Parkside & Strata will kick off its Clerkenwell Design Week programme with The Next Generation, showcasing student sustainability concepts.
Starting at 2pm, the afternoon will be a fascinating chance to see how the next generation of designers are thinking about the challenges of global climate change and how commercial interior design can make a lasting impact.
Wednesday’s activities will focus on zero waste, with the chance to craft your own upcycled planter in Parkside & Strata’s 3pm workshop. Then at 6pm catch Planq, a furniture brand that’s one of Holland’s Sustainable Young 100 organisations, as it talks about making beautiful products from waste materials.
The theme continues on Thursday in light-hearted fashion with a zero-waste cocktail masterclass at 3pm, followed with a chance to taste these fabulous cocktails – coloured to match Parkside tiles – with friends and colleagues, and a live DJ until late.
Throughout Clerkenwell Design Week, Parkside & Strata will be hosting the CPD Breakfast Club, giving a chance to catch one of its RIBA accredited CPDs every morning at 10am. On Tuesday the club will present Creative Tile Fabrication, exploring bespoke surface designs and technical solutions.
Wednesday’s CPD will be a chance to hear Sustainable Surface Materials, exploring what the tiling industry is doing to become more sustainable. Thursday’s CPD Breakfast Club enters the world of Terrazzo and technical stone tiles. Topics covered include how terrazzo and technical stone is made, the history of terrazzo and its recent revival.
James Journet, Sales and Design Director says, “Clerkenwell Design Week is a great chance to really get stuck into conversations and explore how we can collaborate as an industry to become more sustainable in our actions. The whole team, plus our fantastic speakers, are certainly looking forward to welcoming designers to the Sustainability and Design Studio as we come together to find ways to meet the challenges of climate change. I’m particularly excited to see what fresh ideas the next generation of our industry will have to create a more sustainable future.”
To fuel the conversation, the Parkside & Strata’s Pizza Truck will be serving fresh wood-fired pizza from outside the green powered studio, without a single kilowatt or drop of gas being used.
