This past week has been a rather busy and vibrant one in London's EC1 at Clerkenwell Design Week and most showrooms and studios in the area opened its doors wide, put on special events and hosted talks and parties - and all with one theme in common - design.  Be it architecture, furniture and interiors or interesting finishes... it was a feast to all senses!

From today I will blog about what I saw, talks I attended and anything else that caught my attention.  

Today's post is about the beautiful Perillo chair, designed by Martin Ballendat.

"Dauphin is one of the world's leading office seating manufacturers, recognized in more than 50 countries for our proven competence in the field.
Perillo is made of thermo plastic with a high gloss finish.  Crafted from one continuous sheet of material, the seat surface, backrest and armrests offer an uninterrupted line that forms this ultra modern chair.  Its sophisticated design, yet simple sculpted appearance makes it the perfect choice for lobbies, touchdown spaces and more."
Dauphin fitted out the main talks room in the Farmiloe Building with the ZUCO Perillo and little Perillo chairs - and I can confirm they were most certainly a hit with the crowds of design folk and students who attended. There was a competition to win one of these gorgeous Little Perillo's - I wonder who got lucky!
I visited their showroom and was shown around by the delightful Dauphin team;  they know their stuff and are passionate about Dauphin and what they do.   We were treated to a tasty selection of wines from their wine estate - Allee Bleue, in sunny South Africa. 
I guess now all that's left is to start saving up for a Perillo of my very own!
