Five top design trends for 100% Design 2018

June 2018
100% Design’s core exhibition covers Interiors, Kitchens, Bathrooms and Bedrooms, emerging brands and, new for this year, 100% Build London; a dedicated show for the construction and architectural industries.
100% Design will provide a platform for a mix of new interior brands such as One Plus Eleven, a conceptual furniture company that blurs the boundary between art and design, and established names including Italian design heavyweight Arper.  Other brands to watch include Casa Botelho, Rubn, B Sweden, Graypants by Pad Home, Antonio Lupi, Odddot, Taamaa, Tuuci, Lyon Beton, Frama, Pintaark, Adventures in Furniture and Madheke.
A number of brands will push the boundaries of contemporary living, debuting models for the future, including Riko with Starck and Tesla.  Philippe Starck will present a prefabricated house with Riko, a Slovenian engineering and manufacturing brand that specialises in industrial prefabrication and energy production technology. Riko first teamed up with Starck in 2014 to unveil a new home featuring rooftop energy producing technologies, wind turbines, rainwater recovery and heating pumps.
Tesla, a brand focussed on accelerating the world's transition to sustainable energy, will showcase Powerwall, a device which integrates with solar to store excess energy generated during the day making it available only when you need it, minimising reliance on other forms of energy.
Olympia London, home to 100% Design, is undergoing a major regeneration project, managed by owners Yoo Capital and Deutsche Finance International. Heatherwick Studio, in collaboration with SPPARC Architects, will lead the architectural enhancement. The project will see the 130-year-old exhibition centre based on a 14-and-a-half-acre site in Kensington, London, transformed into a world-leading arts, entertainment, exhibition and experiential district whilst staying true to its original heritage as an exhibition business.
Alongside this Talks With 100% Design returns as the most anticipated and forward thinking talks programme of the design calendar.  Expect a series of inspiring sessions reflecting the very best in global design, emerging talents and the changing landscape of London's creative communities.
Originally targeted towards the design industry in the UK, 100% Design was first staged in 1995. Today, the show attracts more than 27,000 visitors including architects, designers and interiors specialists.  Featuring an unrivalled talk’s programme, bespoke installations and a curated selection of world-leading international brands, 100% Design is the dedicated meeting place for design in London.  100% Design takes place across four days at Olympia London, from 19th to 22nd September, concurrently with the London Design Festival.
