The latest materials and textures are explored at the annual surfaces showcase…
The Surface Design Show returns to London’s Business Design Centre next month and will once again consist of over 120 exhibitors showcasing a wide range of materials including natural stone, wood, tiles, recyclable materials, metal, living materials, paints, illuminated surfaces and coatings.
Open 4-6 February 2014, the show is billed as the leading event for architects and interior designers to source new, cutting-edge and inspiring interior and exterior surface solutions. 2014 will be the 11th edition of the event and with rapid changes in technology and the environment, it perhaps has more stories to tell than ever on the materials that could be of interest to anyone involved with contemporary architecture and design.
Highlights will include Light School, the show’s new focus on lighting presented by Sharon Stammers of Light Collective which will be a series of inspirational talks and demonstrations by 15 of the top UK lighting designers.
Future Thinking, an exhibition curated by Arup called ‘Contemporary Artefacts’ will be showcasing actual fragments from Arup’s most innovative building facades.
Global Color Research’s Trend Wall takes the visitor on a journey through 2015’s colour and material trends, whilst Fringe Thinking underpins the show with an interesting and topical programme of CPD seminars, presentations and debates from the likes of AIS, SBID and Mix Trends.
