Glaze is a pavilion designed as a focal hub for the Clerkenwell Design Week 2015 Presents programme, showcasing the variety of sponsor Gx Glass products.

During the festival Glaze became a kaleidoscopic meeting point which played host to talks and workshops including live drawing sessions by both professionals and the public.

Drawing on Clerkenwell’s heritage as a centre of design and manufacture, the application of glass in construction, interiors, installation art and sculpture are celebrated in a walk through visual wonder of glass inspired by Venetian Murano sweets.

A lightweight steel frame holding glass of different widths and finishes, draws the visitor towards the centre of the installation. A linear LED strip runs through the structure lighting it up like a beacon at night.

Fully demountable and reusable, the pavilion is in the final phases of organisation to secure its permanent location and use as a community hub in Cambridgeshire.
