100% Design returns with another compelling series of thought-provoking, specially commissioned installations. In association with Studio Design UK on creative development, these explore the theme ‘Design in Colour’ and range from a multisensory tea café by Daniel Rous of Fabrica, to a colour-inspired concept space in Interiors featuring WGSN’s Spring/Summer 2016 colour palette, and selected designer furniture from Vitra, Arper, Artemide, Lasvit and Terence Woodgate, among others.
As well as a strong line-up of special events and features, 100% Design is always a great place to discover emerging talent from around the world, and this year is no exception. Look out for new wallpaper collections from surface pattern designer Kirath Ghundoo, as well as furniture launches from British designer Tom Raffield, Korea-based Studio EJ, Icelandic design group North Limited, Argentinian architect designer Natalia Geci, and the 100% Design New Designer Award winner, Mu Hau Kao.
Lighting continues to play a key part in the Interiors section and visitors can savour the latest designs from an illuminating range of leading manufacturers and designers – from Original BTC and Mullan Lighting, to Tramonti Art Design, Charles Lethaby Lighting, Designheure and Mambo Unlimited Ideas.
