Ahead of AW21, we can finally unveil one of Printworks’ biggest developments to date, Inkwells.
Located in the heart of the building, directly beneath the well-trodden dancefloors of the Press Halls, for the first time in our history we’re opening a brand-new space within the venue.
Once home to huge ink tanks supplying the giant printing presses that still loom over the Press Halls today, Inkwells is an architecturally striking space with low ceilings, colonnades of beaten concrete pillars and a stripped-back, industrial aesthetic that is unmistakably Printworks, yet uniquely different.
Not only does the dark and visceral nature of Inkwells perfectly compliment the cavernous Press Halls, this new space allows us to expand our music programming, carving out a platform to showcase a wide range of new, exciting sounds and talent.
Inkwells will feature lighting focused on complimenting the industrial architecture of the room, highlighting the historical ink distribution pipes, pillars and electrical services within the space. Stacks of speakers and subs will be staggered across the room to give maximum sound coverage and clarity.
The launch of Inkwells has been many months in the making and is a sign of our desire to ensure the reopening season is Printworks’ best to date.
The Redacted reopening weekend and launch of Inkwells mark a new chapter for Printworks London as we prepare to welcome our community back to the dance with an experience unlike anything else.
