100 per cent design on Saturday, followed by Focus & Decorex on Sunday.
Here's me on the Sunday morning outside Rococo where I needed to shelter from the rain on the way. Rococo wasn't open damn it - didn't they know I needed sustenance?
Was it worth the trip? Yes it was. For all the things that didn't inspire me directly, there are double the ones that did.
And you cannot help but be inspired by the buzz that is generated by a plethora of creative people all in one place.
So, fresh from my immersion please let me share my highlights:
SATURDAY - 100 PER CENT DESIGN
|This was my favourite light fitting. You can customise it by ditching Lizzie and putting in whatever you like up to 5 kilos in weight. Mind you I quite like Liz|
KOREA DESIGN had some great things on show:
JOO DESIGN had the most fabulous laptop 'table' now on my Christmas list:
I loved David Irwin's furniture: satisfyingly functional and beautifully crafted:
Speaking of which: Design Guild Mark had some lovely things on show
Quoting from their website:
Totally adore this little radiator too. It is almost pet like. If I could afford these all round my house I'd do it.

This was a good talk emphasising the importance of the relationship between architect and client -
- dialogue & trust
- connection & communication
- listening & collaboration
Next time I'll talk about Focus.........
