What happened

At CDW 2018

Clerkenwell Design Week is over for another year. It was fantastic to see so many familiar faces as well as welcome the new. It was particularly pleasing to see DHC truly establish itself as a key destination at CDW and the wider Clerkenwell business community.

Main Event


Libero 2 One Minute Challenge

Congratulations to Jason Stephen of Springfield office who wins £150 of ‘Love2Shop’ vouchers.

Jason achieved an unbelievable box-to-assembly time of just 26 seconds. Whilst the Libero 2 Challenge was a bit of fun designed to draw in the CDW crowds, it did once again underline why the Metalicon Libero monitor arm is a favourite with designers, office furniture retailers and fitters alike…nothing comes close for ease (and speed) of installation and use.

Runner up was Warren Counsell – Senator – 31 seconds – £100 Love2Shop voucher.

Third – Ismail Siddique – K&N – 32 seconds – £50 Love2Shop voucher.

…and dont forget

Lot’s of Lovely Grub

Fish and chips, Canapés, Krispy Kremes, freshly ground coffee and enough alcohol to sink a battle ship from our fully stocked open bar.

The legendary Gee Street Fish and chip van returned for the 4th year running, dishing out Halloumi and chips or Cod and chips. We washed it down with a glasses of prosecco, bottles of beer and numerous little numbers from our fully stocked bar.

Krispy Kreme doughnuts for dessert were a much welcome return. As were the canapes, soft drinks and fresh ground coffee on tap throughout the day from DHC brand Caffia Coffee.


Meet our

A key strength of DHC – It’s rare to get so many office interior experts in one place at the same time.

7 different brands owned and run by industry professionals. Our product-orientated people from Formetiq, Metalicon, Duraflor, Caffia, Duten, VTEC and Supawood had a huge wealth of industry experience and expertise to share. A big thank you to everyone from each brand for all their help and support.
