100% Design, the UK's largest design trade show, will celebrate its 21st edition in a brand new home, Olympia London (23-26 September 2015). Staged in the dramatic Grand and West Halls, the show will take place across two levels and feature five distinct sections including Interiors, Design & Build, Kitchens & Bathrooms, Workplace and Emerging Brands. The popular talks programme, Talks with 100% Design, will also return with headline speakers including Ilse Crawford.
William Knight, Show Director, comments, ‘It's another significant and exciting year for 100% Design. We're set for the most visually dramatic edition, bringing the UK's leading design show to a new home for the first time in 17 years. ‘The natural light, intimacy and high-quality visitor experience at Olympia London, blended with the focused and original content of the show, promises to be a brilliant and stimulating combination.’
Based upon the central theme ‘Design in Colour', 100% Design 2015 has collaborated closely with trend forecasters WGSN among many others to bring to life the visual and sensual experience of using colour across interiors and the build environment. The show will present specially commissioned editorial features, worldleading seminars and live content, alongside over 400 UK and international exhibitors.
The top colour trends for 2016, as forecasted by WGSN, will also thread throughout the show as a means to demonstrate the importance of colour and to navigate the show. This is supported by the award-winning 100% Design website which fully embraces colour, providing an opportunity to search exhibitor products in each of the selected colours.
