Peace reigns … and with free coffee

Located in the heart of Clerkenwell, amongst the hubbub of Design Week, Domus Woodland Escape offers a tranquil refuge from the mad rush of the surrounding east London streets and, more importantly, free coffee.

Domus Tiles’ showroom on Great Sutton Street is the home of an award- winning collection of ceramic, glass, stone and mosaic tiles sourced from all over the world. Their tiles have been used in projects at Brent Civic Centre, Selfridges London, Equinox Gym, Tollcross Aquatics.

The installation, open for Clerkenwell Design Week, incorporates a mix of living trees, installation art and furniture recycled from Morag Myerscough’s Movement Cafe. Myerscough is known for her work with The Movement Cafe which opened in Greenwich for the 2012 Olympics. She also designed the ‘I Get Around’ giant beachball installation in Old Street.

Myerscough’s brightly painted stools and eye catchingly bright wood panels bring this woodland haven into city style modernity, replicating the look and feel of a festival but without the mud, tents and cans of Red Stripe.

It’s a refuge for weary feet and offers free food and drink from some of London’s finest, including Black Box Coffee who are not only giving away their amazing range of artisanal coffee for free but also offering a platform for Article 25’s Nepal Appeal.
