The highly successful Surface Design Show returns to the Business Design Centre from the 4th to 6th February 2014.
It is the leading event for architects and interior designers to source new, cutting edge and inspiring interior and exterior surface solutions. The 2014 show will be the 11th edition of the event and with rapid changes in technology and the environment the show has never been so essential to contemporary architecture and design.
The event kicks off on Tuesday 4 February with a Preview Evening hosted by the RIBAJ and Wednesday 5 sees Cany Ash, of Ash Sakula, chairing a lively PechaKucha evening.
The Show itself features 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 fifteen 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 voyage through 2015’s colour and material trends. Finally, 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.
