KI House returns for #CDW2022
Following a highly successful debut in 2019, KI House returns for #CDW2022, promising once again to be an unmissable destination. We look forward to welcoming you back to our fabulous pop-up space at the landmark Paxton Locher House where there will be plenty to see, do, eat and drink! To mark the return of the festival, this stunning home will be transformed to convey the theme of 'renew, reinvent, revitalise' - blooming in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. KI's latest seating, table, storage & agile workspace products will be displayed in striking finishes, and enhanced with a bold floral installation by McQueens Flowers to emphasise the theme.

Collaborations & Contributors
KI House brings together a vast array of collaborations & contributors, offering a multi-layered visitor experience.
KI has commissioned young UK-based artist Baraka Carberry (Bokiba) to create the visual identity for KI House. The theme of 'renew, reinvent, revitalise' is embodied in explosions of florals and colour, drawing from the McQueens Flowers installation.
Baraka is a multidisciplinary artist, who loves working digitally. Her work connects back to her background in textiles, featuring bright, vibrant palettes emphasised by playful shapes and grounded in the natural world via floral representations.
KI House will be the launch site for the 'Clerkenwell Dinosaur Hunt'!
Created by British artist Jay Jay Burridge, this neon light sculpture will make its Clerkenwell debut at CDW2022 - the first stop on its tour around the neighbourhood over the course of the year. Share your selfie with the dinosaur on Instagram!
