Ripple visited this year’s 100% Design Show at Olympia. The show has been exhibiting since 1995, with some calling it “The commercial cornerstone of the London Design Festival”
“Visiting the award winning show is a unique audience of architects, designers, specifiers, retailers and developers, as well as multinational companies looking to source directly for their latest projects.”
100% Design is the UK’s largest design trade show with this year’s theme being “Experience”, looking at the ways in which design guides, frames and improves the way we live, work and consume.
For our designers it was a chance to catch up with suppliers and network with other design professionals as well as an opportunity to see emerging design talent and established international brands. They also visited the London Design Fair at the Old Truman Brewery in Spitalfields.
Jess, our apprentice designer also found the experience very useful: “I thoroughly enjoyed my time in London, experiencing everything a design fair has to offer. I took plenty of photos, especially at Olympia as many of the designs impressed and inspired me. I then got the opportunity to use my research from the design fairs in a project I have been working on at college.”
