Review: 100% Design

100% Design is one of those unique shows that manages to bring designers and manufacturers from different market sectors together to celebrate great design. Situated at the always impressive Olympia London, with its fantastic arching roof and floods of natural light, the show which is part of London Design Festival certainly impressed us once again.

Design Insider had the opportunity to interview Max Fraser about his ‘Elements’ installation that took centre stage at the entrance of the show,  and celebrated iconic designs of the past and present, including seating by Barber & Osgerby for Vitra, Tom Dixon and Nika Zupanc for SΓ©, lighting by Tom Raffield and Michael Young for EOQ De sign. (Video interview will be coming out shortly)

We also managed to grab an interview with Artist/Designer Michael Angove, to talk through his latest collaboration with Muirhead Leather and Morgan Furniture, where 2 of Michael’s distinct designs had been digitally printed onto leather to create a very unique upholstered armchair. (watch our for our video interview with Michael Angove, coming to the site very soon)

While we were at the show we also caught up with BCFA members Nowy Styl, Orangebox, William Hands, Protocol and Futura Leather.
