100% Design is considered the UK’s largest design trade show and will be held on September 23-26 at Olympia London. This year’s event is based upon the central theme of ‘Design in Colour, in order to celebrate the natural light of Olympia, embracing one of the design’s most important factors: colour.
Packed with innovative, fresh ideas, the Emerging Brands section of 100% Design presents the UK’s strongest platform for newly established design talent. The Design Guildmark Awards will return to 100% Design showcasing the 2015 winners. The awards promote excellence and raise the profile of British design and innovation.
Another awards programme exhibiting at the show is The Wood Awards, which will be displaying a selection of the nominated pieces from the furniture and product category. The awards aim to recognise, encourage and promote outstanding design, craftsmanship and installation using wood.
“It’s an exciting time for everyone involved in 100% Design; exhibitors, content providers, designers and the show team at Media 10. Since taking the show on in 2012 we’ve worked to refine and develop the exhibition in September, but also the year-round activity in the form of events, talks, marketing and promotion. We’re focused on delivering success though innovation and curation, bringing you the best in design in its many forms” said show director, Will Knight.
