VIDEO: IS DESIGN POST-NATIONAL? Ben van Berkel, Kenneth Grange, Paul Kelley and Matthew Butcher chaired by Justin McGuirk


A fascinating debate at the press conference at 100%Design which posed the question of whether design has become “post-national”. The 17th 100%Design festival has 13 international stalls, including new country stands from Chilie, China and Greece, a fact which might suggest an ever stronger sense of national identity through design.
The panel brought together designers and architects, including Ben van Berkel, Kenneth Grange, Paul Kelley and Matthew Butcher as well as leading luminaries from the world of design commentary Graham Jones, Chairman of Design Guild Mark and Vice President of Knoll International, and chaired by award winning design critic Justin McGuirk.

GOSEE: Method Furniture stand X54

100%Design For The Weekend

Highlights of 100%Design 2011 so far , but more to come great exhibitors, seminars and workshops.

100% Design: Friday Highlights

As another day at 100% Design draws to a close, let’s take a look at some of the highlights that have caught the attention of Despoke’s roaming camera lense.

Visitors express themselves on the 100% Design blackboard: 'Design Should Not Have Any Boarders' - we quite agree!

Blueprint Mag Road Signs Display

Blueprint magazine gave guests the the chance design their own road signs - there was an interesting range from comic, to quirky to down right rude!

[re]design wall display

[re]design are thinking ahead to Christmas already, encouraging visitors to design their own recycled gifts.

Earls Court Exhibition Centre

Guests leave Earls Court 2 as the second day of 100% Design draws to a close. There's still a whole weekend ahead though!

2.30 today – GRUPO HABITA’s Carlos Couturier in conversation with Wallpaper* magazine’s Emma O’Kelly

At 2.30 this afternoon, attendees of 100%Design will have the chance to hear seminal design hotelier Carlos Couturier in conversation with Wallpaper* editor at large Emma O’Kelly.

Couturier is creative force behind the hotel group GRUPO HABITA. Internationally renowned for their architecture and interior design, the group has received praise from across the design world. Each of their ten properties are utterly unique and have received praise for their forward thinking design. The disparate group includes a transformed water purification facility, La Purificadoro, and the absolute epitome of 1950s glamour in the form of the Hotel Boca Chica in Acapulco. The group’s offering are all represented by design hotels, a relationship which dates back to the opening of the first GRUPO HABITA property The Habita Hotel in Mexico City.

Ultimate trendsetter and an integral part of a recent revival of Mexican glamour, Couturier considers the unifying characteristic of his hotels to be a forward thinking and a staunch dedication to continuous innovation. A design aesthetic propelled by constant reinvention, the hotels are the epitome of laid back glamour rooted in their locale. Drawing referential details from local industries from petroleum to sugar production, these are hotels that are at once contemporary and timeless, each the concentrated essence of their environment and the heritage of the country they are inspired by.

Couturier discusses “the client’s perspective” in The Hampton Room at 2.30 till 3.15 places are limited and it’s first come first served. Look out for the Despoke video that will go live following the event.

 

GOSEE: Beautiful riotous colour at Corita Rose’s 100%Design stand | X75

 

At stand X75 you’ll find Corita Rose’s kitsch heraldic fabric designs. Popping with colour and printed on velvet, the designs are wonderfully anachronistic. The strong imagery and vivid colours transform furniture and vary from traditional pattern repeats to large and small-scale, individually designed panels of fabric which transform pieces into something strangely timeless, absolutely modern but somehow traditional.

Centre piece to the stand is an exhibit from the festival of Britain show in 1951, a leather boxer whose condition has deteriorated. Now donning Corita Rose fabric, restored to a new lease of life. Another lovely anachronism, there is nothing which resembles the festival of Britain colours about these vivid designs.

100%Design asks Is Design Post-National?

Leading luminaries from the design world ask “Is design post-national?” It is a total rethink of design, not just a blurring of national boarders and boundaries, which is propelling design today. Rather than a post-national design tradition, there is an ever evolving design tradition motivated by ever intensifying localism.

Blueprint Awards Trail ahead of tonights awards – 6.30 at the Central Bar

Tonight it’s the Blueprint awards. Ahead of that, take the trail around the exhibition centre to check out the stands and the products nominated for prizes.

Here are some if the trails highlights… First up Daddy Long Legs at stand D60. These ash stools are up for Best New Product in recognition of their effortless simplicity.

The PCT stand has done it again this year, redefining the stand space with repetitive modular shapes in collaboration with UNStudio. The most impressive stand, pushing the boundaries of what this exhibition is all about, great design working in collaboration with impressive materials. Go experience the BluePrint “Best Stand” at E130

Rocker is not what springs to mind when you think of a rocking chair, elegant and beautiful, this chair from Baines and Fricker uses welsh elm and harris tweed, effortless and timeless and a contender for Best New Product.

Pull up a letter. The typographic lounge furniture from Tabisso at stand X20 are up for best new product. I can’t get enough of the quotation and exclamation mark lamps, a gorgeous addition to this fantastically realised collection.

Grille rug brings the outdoors indoors, Adrienne Chen incorporates elements of the urban environment in these new floor coverings. Another one up for best new product at stand X62.

Paul Kelley’s nest of tables pop with colour and look as lovely collapsed together as when they’re in use. Another one up for best new product at stand E39.

 

Check out the rest of the trail on the 100%Design site and you can get it on the app. The awards are tonight at 6.30pm in the Central Bar.

go see: Spineless Classics at 100%Design | Stand X28

Spineless classics takes your favourite novels and makes turning the page a thing of the past. The novel’s text (and that’s every single word of it..!) is arranged on a single sheet, forming a book cover style graphical representation of each novel made up of the text . The ‘icons’ for each text err on the side of simplicity and form an instantly recognisably motif for the novels – the acts of Romeo and Julliet arranged around a heart, the Great Gatsby depicts Gatsby and his beloved rolls royce and Pride and Prejudice sees Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy in silhouette.
The cleverest depictions take the iconic profile of their authors as their motif, including Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations – for the hedge fund manager in your life – and The Complete Works of Shakespeare, weighing in at a feather light 5 AO sheets, getting through all 37 plays never seemed like such an achievable task.
