As an exhibition designer it is undoubtedly important to visit the shows we design for. The Surface Design Show at London’s Business Design Centre is the only event in the UK that focuses on interior & exterior surfaces, bringing interior lighting & innovative materials to life.
Having officially studied design through school, college & university, and through my work in the industry, one thing is clear – you never stop learning. As Transport For London has learned, detailed in the article below, design is subversive and subjective, making it the perfect theme for discussion, admiration, opinion and conflict. ‘Good’ design is at the mercy of its surroundings, its environment if you like. Fashion plays a big part, and as we all know and understand, fashions come, linger, often out-stay their welcome and leave, in a sad trudge of embarrassment, resenting the new, shiny thing there to take its place.
