100% design


it will be inter­est­ing to see how this year’s trade show extrav­a­ganza at earl’s court has reacted to the cur­rent chilly eco­nomic climate.

i’ll be adding posts this week show­ing what i think are the high­lights and some names to look out for as we wade out of the mire of the reces­sion  — fea­tures i’ll be look­ing out for will be 100% nor­way, hold­ers of one of the biggest spaces.
100%norway is hold­ing its open­ing recep­tion tomor­row evening (wednes­day 23rd sep­tem­ber) . pre­vi­ous recep­tions have seen buck­ets of cham­pagne and the atten­dance of roy­alty, it remains to be seen how much of this will be repeated this year. i’m tak­ing my trusty canon eos 50d, so i’ll be fill­ing up this site with pap­pa­razzi shots by the week­end. (just kid­ding). the nor­we­gian embassy have always par­tic­i­pated enthu­si­as­ti­cally in 100%design, show­cas­ing some of their coun­tries most excit­ing new designers.

we’ll also be look­ing at the efforts of JAM art of brand­ing, whose excur­sion into tv didn’t go too well ear­lier this year  — they’re say­ing eco­nomic down­turn, i just thought — well ..

there’s a sem­i­nar pro­gram curated by MIX pub­li­ca­tions which is intriguing

there’ll also be the blue­print awards so quite a full week. the show opens on thurs­day at earl’s court, and runs through until sunday
