Talented students light up Clerkenwell Design Week


Date: 22nd May 2017

A pop-up shop for watch and leather goods brand Shinola at Clerkenwell Design Week has been created by past and present students from the School of Arts and Creative Industries at Buckinghamshire New University.Picture of Freddie Fort and Phil Hutfield.

Clerkenwell Design Week takes place at various venues around Clerkenwell from 23-25 May and the Shinola pop-up shop will be on display in St John's Square, London.

The Bolt, designed by Giles Miller Studio, has been manufactured and installed by graduates Phil Hutfield and Freddie Fort, who were assisted by final-year BSc (Hons) Product Design students Cristian Catangiu, Cezar Ciobanu, and Ashin Rai.

It consists of over 8,000 individual CNC cut wooden pieces and Phil was asked to manufacture and install it due to his previous work with Giles Miller Studio, working to produce a reception desk for the V&A Museum in London.

Dr Lyndon Buck, Principal Lecturer - Product Design, said: "The Bolt for Shinola is a very prestigious project that forms the centrepiece of Clerkenwell Design Week.

"It is fantastic that graduates and students from Bucks New University have been so involved in it's realisation."
