Projects Office provided a vibrant setting to host the programme of talks for 100% Design’s 2018 event.


Kensington Olympia, London / 2018

Projects Office were commissioned to design the auditorium for 2018’s 100% Design show in west London. 

A mainstay of the annual London Design Festival, 100% Design brings together designers and architects in the festival’s largest trade show. We were invited to design the auditorium which would act as a focus within Olympia’s main hall, add colour to the space, and support a huge range of talks, topics and speakers throughout the show.

In line with the show’s celebration of construction, the structure was fabricated on site from construction site netting woven through a simple timber frame. The vibrant colours of this standard material created a vivid backdrop and permeable enclosure for the events series, and created maximum impact from a very tight budget. 

We were delighted to see our design as the backdrop for talks from the festival’s main speakers: Thomas Heatherwick, Marcel Wanders, Kelly Hoppen, Farshid Moussavi and many more.
