For the duration of Clerkenwell Design Week, British artist Liz West teamed up with renowned flooring experts Domus to create a new vivid and eye-popping installation, Live Colour. West is known for creating vivid environments that mix luminous colour and radiant light, having presented works both nationally and internationally, most recently at St Albans Museum + Gallery and Milan Design Week.
