100% Design shakes up its programme for 2018

June 2018

100% Design returns for its 24th edition this year and has announced a shake-up to traditional programming, demonstrating its renewed vision to be the unmissable show for design in London’s creative calendar. 100% Design will present new features, fresh design talents and emerging names alongside a roster of industry favourites, big name brands and innovators. Taking place at Olympia, London from 19th to 22nd September, this year 100% Design will present two new features, 100% Futures and 100% Forward, which will focus on emerging designers across innovation and furniture design respectively.

This year will also see the launch of the new West Kensington Design District, a hub that is set to inspire design enthusiasts and become the must-visit district during the London Design Festival, with an engaging programme featuring design brands, globally recognised cultural institutions and unmissable events this September. The district will be brought to life by a stellar array of partners including the Design Museum, the world’s leading museum devoted to contemporary design. V&A Blythe House will offer a rare opportunity to participate in guided tours whilst Polish brand Zieta presents Plopp 4.0 at Arthill Gallery amongst many other partner events. 

100% Futures is a new exhibition celebrating forward-thinking design from a selection of British and international talents who have chosen to set up their practices in London. Spearheaded by Max Fraser, 100% Futures will shine a light on some of the most exciting designs under the theme ‘Designing for London’ across travel, technology, well-being, public spaces and sustainability. Alongside this, 100% Futures will also share designs from other cities, looking at ideas around the future of city-living and the best of designing for urban centres across the world.

100% Forward, curated by journalist Barbara Chandler, will highlight eight emerging design talents across furniture, product, lighting and textile design. Each will be championed by an established designer who carved his or her career during the first decade of 100% Design. Simon Pengelly, who started his career in 1993 when he presented at 100% Design, has selected rising talent Daniel Schofield. In five short-years, Daniel has honed his reductive approach to materials, form and function to create celebrated lighting, furniture and table top products.
