100% Design 2016 Preview

20 September 2016. News.

London Design Festival kicked off on Saturday 17th September and this week sees the festival continue throughout the City in a variety of exciting and unique events. One of the major attractions of the London Design Festival is this year’s 100% Design, which will be held at Olympia London from 21st-24th September.

Reserved largely for the design industry, 100% Design provides the perfect exhibition space for interior designers, architects and design specialists to network and showcase their ideas. 100% Design is an excellent way to discover the latest trends and see what other professionals are working on across different parts of the industry. The five main sections on display are: Interiors, Workplace, Kitchens & Bathrooms, Design & Build and Emerging Brands.

The theme for 2016 is 'Experience' which runs throughout the show and will be brought to life by exhibitors in a selection of special features and displays. The theme addresses the growing need for enhanced experiences through design and the importance of engaging with designs both at home and at work. With a host of leading brands and designers, 100% Design provides access to unique individuals, talks and design ideas.

Some of the talks that are more specific to the office design industry provide an excellent insight into current trends and topics. Here are some of the most relevant talks that will provide some valuable points across the four days, as they relate to some of the most current and important issues affecting the corporate design and build industry.
