If you’re heading to the Surface Design Show this week (11-13 February), and are seeking inspiration of who to see, we’ve got you covered. From emerging innovators to established interior brands, there’s something to suit all interests and specification requirements. Here’s a round-up of the best...
Our partner Tektura Wallcoverings will exhibit its latest ranges from the show’s mezzanine level. Having kicked off the new decade with the launch of 20 new designs, including Terrace, Sketch and Bead, which feature charred wood detailing, textured metallics and authentic weaves, the Tektura stand is a definite must-visit.
A true front-runner in the design industries’ mission to eliminate waste from the sector, Smile Plastics creates beautiful hand-crafted panels from would-be rubbish. Its products are made from 100% recycled and recyclable plastics, which are suitable for a wide range of applications – from small to large scale. We’ve long been fans, and can guarantee you will be too (if you’re not already).
We’ve written about Atticus Durnell’s That’s Caffeine project before, and we’re sure we’ll do it again. One of the most genuinely innovative products to have recently hit the commercial interiors sector, the unique material is created from recycled coffee grounds. The process allows for the development of surfaces that offer all manner of creative possibilities for both interior and exterior projects.
This Barcelona-based studio specialises in creating bespoke geometric wall art for retail, public, corporate and residential interiors. Inspired by the Japanese craft of origami, triangles, cubes and chevrons all feature in subtle shades of grey, blue and white across wood and concrete. Creator Kinga Kubowicz is a surface design star on the rise.
Mirroring nature as closely as a surface covering possibly can, Organoid Technologies’ sustainable products draw on the aesthetics, tactility and floral smells of fresh flowers and alpine hay. Thanks to a “gentle production process, the natural features of scent, colour and feel are preserved.” The resulting wallpapers add a touch of beauty to residential, hospitality and retail settings.
