Tuesday 20 May marked the launch of Tile Mile at Clerkenwell Design Week in London. Turkishceramics has partnered with russ + henshaw, an up-and-coming London-based design practice, to create the temporary, ceramic installation located at St John’s Gate in Clerkenwell, which will be open until 22 May.
Tile Mile is an exciting temporary installation celebrating the products of different Turkishceramics brands, designed to appropriate the arch of St. John's Gate as part of Clerkenwell Design Week Festival 2014. Over 88 hours of tiling and 7,000 tiles went in to the making of Tile Mile.
Hundreds of visitors from the architecture and design community visited the installation to experience the beauty of Turkish ceramic tiles. Visitors expressed their appreciation for the installation saying how the design was very creative and colourful.
Turkishceramics also celebrated the launch of the temporary installation by hosting a reception. Over 150 guests attended the reception which included architects and designers from the London architecture and design community.
