One of the key components of the London Design Festival, 100% Design celebrates its 20th birthday this year, which makes it older then the LDF itself; and in preparation for its move next year to Olympia, it seems it will be going out with a bang. Studio Design UK is producing its dramatic tunnel entrance to the central bar area with a ‘kaleidoscope’ theme, to bring visitors to a dramatic installation created by Daniel Libeskind in collaboration with glass firm Lasvit. Look out too for Turkish Ceramics’ ‘Foam Dome’ pavilion, designed by vPPR architects, which will apparently be working up a lather in the Kitchens & Bathrooms hub. 100% Design will be at Earl’s Court from 17-20 September. Jan-Carlos Kucharek takes his pick from this year’s show.
