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.
