MICHAEL NORTHCROFT TAKE OVER THE CRYPT AT CLERKENWELL DESIGN WEEK 2017
We were extremely excited to show our Serafina colleciton in The Crypt of St John for Clerkenwell Design Week 2017. The Crypt was a special venue for us and the perfect location to reveal our latest Serafina colleciton.
Exclusive finishes, luxurious detials and expert manufacturing techniques were the core of our philosophy to create these unique pieces.
This exhibition was created by our Design Director, Marta Vega, and everything was handmade in our East London workshops.
Nimble yet mighty, Lighting Design consultants Nulty used their expert knowledge to illuminate the exhibition. Alongside our beautiful furniture pieces, the lighting brought the 900 year old architecture of the space to life.
Our Serafina exhibition was a truly British celebration of furniture and lighting, one of the highlights of Clerkenwell Design Week 2017, as said by Dezeen!

Dear Mayor of London,
Re London’s new Routemaster buses
Congratulations on your election as London’s Mayor. It’s a very big job so I hope you find time to consider the matter raised in this letter.
As leading designers and manufacturers in London we celebrate the introduction of the new London bus. It is the first modern bus that has been designed in our view. It is an iconic branding that sets London on a different level to other cities. The alternative ‘brick on wheels’ seem poor cousins of the new iconic London bus.
We urge you to continue the programme of extending these beautiful buses throughout London’s bus fleet. We propose that a design competition should be launched to design beautiful single decker buses and new London taxi cabs too. Life in London can and should be inspirational. We are a unique city and life here is enhanced for all by strong visual design. The criticism of engine efficiency and non opening windows are areas where the ‘Khan Mk 2 Routemaster’ can resolve those issues.
The higher cost of designed buses is well worth paying. We note the creative use of these buses by major brands. It all adds to the appeal of London to visitors and residents alike.We wish you well in your demanding job and hope that the design inspiration in these highly visible British designed and made buses will not be killed off.
We have just finished exhibiting at Clerkenwell Design Week for the first time. We loved being in the Fabric Nighclub and meeting so many new clients and visitors.
We are planning being there next year too. For those earlybirds the dates are May 23 to 25 inclusive.
We are delighted to add our new Blondell Collection to our list of luxurious furniture collections.
Blondell, designed by Marta Vega was launched at Syon Park, Decorex 2015 where we exhibited new furniture designs and finishes.
We are delighted with the response to our latest work, and want to thank so many friends old and new who visited us. Thank you
We are delighted to have been shortlisted for The International Design Awards.
Our Ag954 Argento Wide Writing Table in Dapple Red high gloss and Ag512 Argento High four door sideboard in Blonde Okapi high gloss have been shortlisted for the Table and Bespoke Cabinetry categories.
We didn't win an award this time - being pipped at the post by Linley. I want to thank all the many people who voted for our designs. The judging for these awards are voted by all of the customers we each have it's about networking. As our brand increases in strength we become more visible, and we increase our designs and furniture making quality too. So a big thank you to everyone at Michael Northcroft, our wonderful customers and to all who love our work!
