100% Design Features

Each year 100% Design presents different features within the show sections. Here are just some.

100% design, interiors

The overall show theme, Design in Colour, resonates strongly in the Interiors section of 100%
Design. Within this section, the specially commissioned feature highlights the Spring/Summer
2016 colours identified by trend forecasters WGSN.  Created by Studio Design UK, the striking feature provides a simple concept of colour matching both products and tones. It celebrates the unexpected in design, inviting people to look differently at the traditional room set. Working with a range of partners including Paint by Conran, Artemide, Vitra, Arper, Lasvit and Terence Woodgate, the feature creates a series of spaces that visitors can enter from different locations and discover a different experience each time.

ann kyro quinn

For the auditorium,  100% Design have worked with textile artist and designer, Anne Kyyrö Quinn – a long time exhibitor and supporter of 100% Design. The distinctive style of Anne Kyyrö Quinn’s studio is the creation of textured wall coverings and artwork, all tailor made within her London studio. Chosen to respond to the show’s theme due to the studio’s use of bold colours, rich textures and striking motifs. This year’s auditorium is set to be a memorable addition to the range of special spaces designed to host world-class talks.

colour wave, central bar

For a 4th year running, Studio Design UK have created and brought to life the central bar at 100% Design. Working in tandem with material sponsors Perspex® Acrylic Brand, they have created a dynamic structural coloured ‘pavilion’ in the central space of the show, presenting an impressive and aesthetically beautiful interpretation of the creative campaign. Situated in the middle of the show, within the busy workplace section, the central bar acts as a meeting and networking space as well as an area to relax and absorb the show.

mattergarden, 100% design

Situated within the Design and Build zone, Mattergarden has been conceived as an interactive environment to inspire conversation and engagement amongst visitors: its stratum-inspired structure is intended as a tactile platform for the exploration of contemporary and future materials, treatments and applications for use in design, architecture and building. The cliff face ‘hide’ forms an organic juice bar, filled with fresh ingredients bursting through its crevices, peeking out on a “rock formation” on which visitors find a place to perch, roost or congregate.

Chock- Kickstarter campaign

We rather like this new way of stacking! Chock is a simple elegant solution to stacking your bottles or cans, no matter what size they are. The triangular design creates a wedge that works in both directions. The cork form works together with micro-suction foam so that Chock can be used on any smooth polished surface, not just in your fridge.

chock, stacking

Chock works on any smooth surface that is clean and dry. Glass or any similarly smooth surface works best. You can use any number of Chocks together, creating different stacks of bottles. The image below shows how you might also use a Chock when not stacking bottles or cans. You might find other great uses!

Launched on Kickstarter, Chock needs your help- pledge here to show your support and if Cjcok meets its target we might have a couple to give away!
