Furniture Design from the Languedoc-Roussillon through to Sunday September 27th

SUD DE FRANCE DESIGN 2009
Furniture Design from the Languedoc-Roussillon
First time exhibition at the region?s headquarters in London
19 – 27 September 2009
La Maison de la Région Languedoc–Roussillon is to host the first exhibition of contemporary
regional French design at their showroom in London during the London Design Festival.
With over ten designers on show this exhibition sets out to demonstrate the qualities of the
region?s furniture from design innovation to individuality and accessibility.
At the heart of the exhibition will be designs by the late Pierre Paulin, a Languedoc designer,
who has had a profound influence on the global design scene. From his use of colour to
shape and texture, Paulin?s work exemplifies the very best craftsmanship and creativity from
the Languedoc-Roussillon and is a true reflection of what he once claimed “I design with
intent”.
In the UK, the region of Languedoc-Roussillon is famed for its wine and food, culture and
beauty, but one of its best-kept secrets is the burgeoning design community that is the home
to many successful small artisanal companies who design and produce their work in this
great area.
From natural resources to hi-tech manufacturing processes, designers have the full
complement of tools and materials on their doorstep. Whether they are working in solid
wood, wrought iron or rotational moulded polypropylene, these designers demonstrate the
full spectrum of skills and creativity.
La Maison de la Région Languedoc–Roussillon is only one of a small group of centres that
promote the region to select country partners around the world. It is a hub for everything
Languedocienne and is a source for products and business contacts for UK companies and
individuals alike who need to know more about the region.

Neon colours give furniture and textiles the wow factor at 100% Design by Helen Parton

From acid greens to hot pinks, look out for a whole host of neon shades when you visit 100% Design, chiming nicely with the current desire for all things 80s and perhaps also acting as a backlash against the nicely neutral shades that have come to dominate contemporary interiors in recent years.

Triflow Concepts – Triflow Future Talents Review by Tom Wright

Continuing in its recent vein of commissioning cutting-edge new design, the British brassware manufacturers, Triflow, will be announcing the winners of an open competition to design a pioneering new kitchen or bathroom tap or accessory.
The competition closed on 18th September and was launched off the back of Triflow’s 30th anniversary collaboration with renowned architect and designer Zaha Hadid. Hadid, winner of the Pritzker Prize for architecture in 2004, is known for experimenting with new spatial constructs in relation to existing environments and practices, from urban scale to products, interiors and furniture. Her series for Triflow is a true example of this outlandish approach to design and a somewhat visionary aesthetic. Whilst her sweeping curves and complex, extending landscapes are less groundbreaking now, due to the prolificacy of technological design, they are, nevertheless, arresting and internationally recognisable.
Hadid’s combination of complex systems of design with elegant natural forms often leads to a dynamic and unexpected forms which adapt and mould the specifics of a site. Her bold tap design for Triflow continues this fluid language and certainly attracts the eyes as a signature piece but I am slightly concerned as to how it will react to its environment. With the totality of place seemingly so critical to Hadid’s architecture, commercial design products may feel a little out of sorts.
Hadid’s contemporary Zaha Range will bill on show at the Triflow Concepts stand (J20) of the 100% Design London, each presented on unique Zaha designed, ergonomic plinths.
Triflow’s commitment to extending design and designers reach must be commended and their ambitious competition to discover a groundbreaking new design is a bold step forward. Triflow Concepts manufactures all of its products in the UK and aims for its desired market of illustrious homes and hotels around the world. The Triflow is a three-way tap, delivering not only hot and cold water but also filtered water, through a dedicated waterway from the same spout. This development has been a significant change to the industry and its strong patent remains unchallenged. Billed as a ‘hassle-free, eco-friendly alternative to bottled water’, the concept is perhaps on shaky ground with regards to the earth-shattering claims of its manufacturers.
The competition with 100% Design does, however, continue this tradition of innovation and is an expression of Triflow’s roots and achievements in British brassware manufacturing. The entries have been judged and shortlisted by a panel of design professionals, including the afore-mentioned architect Zaha Hadid, celebrated interior designer and architect David Collins, Editor-in-Chief of Wallpaper* magazine Tony Chambers, and design writer and consultant Caroline Roux.
The four shortlisted entries will be on display at 100% Design at the Triflow Concepts stand (J20). Having been subjected to a public vote, the winning designs will be announced on the final day of the show and then be taken into production.

Jocelyn Warner Celebrates 10years with new wallpaper collection

Launching the first wallpaper collection in 1999, with her super size botanical hand prints Lily
and Leaf, Jocelyn’s design aesthetic has gradually evolved, adding more botanical and
abstract designs to the collections, experimenting with new inks and print production
processes resulting in wallpapers that have become award winning design classics. From
their first showing 10 years ago at 100% Design the body of work has grown into an
internationally recognized collection, now distributed worldwide and retailed in the UK
through prestigious design focused shops such as Liberty and Heals, newly available in
selected John Lewis stores and represented by Henry Bertrand at Chelsea Harbour.
Marking the 10th anniversary with a super cool new web site that gives a true feel of the
papers, lighting and rugs and a brand new blog, monthly edited with Jocelyn’s visuals and
thoughts. We will email you a link when it is live.
At 100% Design 3 new wallpapers, each in 5 beautiful colourways, will be launched; designs
that carry Jocelyn’s hallmark – contemporary larger than life botanical themes.
Colour themes follow trend direction: Gold, Black, Pink, Silvers and muted pastels and
neutrals.
Fern
The delicacy of Fern is interpreted into simple fern leaves that seem to gently fall across the
wall, as if floating gently along a stream. Using very fine engraving techniques the leaves
take on the qualities that makes ferns so attractive. Using a sensitively chosen colour
palette, with shimmering iridescent gold’s and silvers creating super – cool sophisticated
prints.
Blossom
Fashion inspired with references to 1950’s, Blossom stems transcend up the wall, the petals
have 3 layers of tone giving them shape and form and are put together into sumptuous
colourways that reflect the past and are currently “happening”. Cool silvers, the very now
gold and black, the moody Charcoal Greys, Dusty Pinks, and off-white neutrals.
Cascade
Climbing stems with erupting blossoms are intertwined with leaves that cascade and tumble
down the wall. Playing with the concept of shadow and light Cascade takes on a freestyle
flow with antique gold’s, highlights in the branches and luxuriant combinations of tones for
the petals.
Fern, Blossom and Cascade come in 10 metre rolls and are all 52cm wide.

Chelsea Institution David Mellor Design Celebrates 40th Anniversary, Unveils New Designs by Corin Mellor

Chelsea Institution David Mellor Design Celebrates 40th Anniversary, Unveils New Designs by Corin Mellor
This year marks the 40th anniversary of David Mellor Sloane Square, which first opened on 7th  October 1969 at 4 Sloane Square. David Mellor, who passed away earlier this year, founded the shop, initially as  David Mellor Ironmonger, reflecting the wide range of products sold,  at the height of the Swinging Sixties, and it quickly established itself as part of the fashionable King’s Road scene.
David’s son Corin, also a talented designer and the  creative director of David Mellor Design, took over the management of the Sloane Square store on the retirement of his father ten years ago and has held on to the original principle of selling things which work well and look good. Many of their products – glass and woodware, cast iron and ceramics – are designed by Corin Mellor exclusively for the David Mellor shops alongside a surprising number of original products first sold in 1969 and still available – some updated but some still exactly as they were.  David Mellor was a firm believer in the longevity and purity of his designs, a belief which has been proven by his first cutlery design ‘Pride’ being in continuous production since 1953.
New pieces by Corin Mellor, including kitchen knives, glassware and a spectacular stainless steel candelabrum will be displayed at this year’s 100% design alongside his father’s cutlery and kitchen knife designs.
David Mellor have exhibited at 100% Design every year since the very first show
You can find David Mellor at Stand (H40)
