Surface Design Show Brings Innovative and Opulent Materials to LifeWednesday 13 December 2017
Surface Design Show Brings Innovative and Opulent Materials to Life ⇒ Surface Design Show is set to return to the prestigious London’s Business Design Centre from 6-8 February 2018. At the event, the newest and best surfaces that the design industry has to offer are showcased. Connecting innovative and exciting materials with an audience of architects, specifiers and designers, Surface Design Show is the sole event in the UK to focus exclusively on interior and exterior surfaces. Throughout this article, you’ll get to enjoy a handful of exhibiting photos from last year’s successful event.
Surface Design Show has, for over a decade, been a reference where industry professionals can immerse themselves in the latest materials for the built environment, have new insights about the sector, and establish contact with like-minded designers, architects and suppliers.
Surface Design Show 2018 will once again have a packed programme of events all designed to inspire and engage visitors and experts alike in a unique design experience. Some of the highlights will be the Opening Night Live Debate and the ever popular Pechakucha Evening, where architects and interior designers have the chance to present 20 images, each for 20 seconds, creating an informal, inspirational and amusing environment.
Debuting in 2016, Surface Spotlight Live is an exciting opportunity for architects and designers to see the very best of advanced materials in two highlighted industry sectors. This year, the focus will be on Residential and Transport. The renowned trend and colour expert, Sally Angharad will curate the area, displaying the best materials that make significant contributions in both areas.
On a different note, Stone Gallery, which debuted this year, reflects the rapidly growing stone market in the UK and how important the relationship between stone and surface design really is. The Gallery is officially supported by Stone Federation GB, and the first exhibition attracted exhibitors from Europe and overseas, all the intent of connecting with global architects and design that make London the world’s pivotal design hub.
Light is a vital partner to surface design, in a way that it dramatically changes the interior and exterior of surfaces. Now in its fifth year, Light School, presented by Light Collective and reinforced by the Institution of Lighting Professionals, will help attendees discover the best of new lighting design and learn about the importance of combining surface and light.
Lastly and on the third day of the show, the Surface Design Awards will occur. The awards recognise and celebrate outstanding examples of progressive design and the use of innovative surfaces in projects both in the United Kingdom and internationally. It is divided into thirteen awards across thirteen categories focuses on exterior and interior. Each project is judged on a range of criteria, such as the type of surface, the use of the materials and the aesthetic design.
