TRIFLOW TAP BY ZAHA HADID
The new Triflow tap by Zaha Hadid takes inspiration from the fluid movement of water. The revolutionary shape employs the latest methods of production and a unique ceramic coring process, resulting in a tap that is as much a piece of art as it is a kitchen or bathroom appliance.
While hot and cold water is controlled by the tap’s discrete handle, the drinking water element is activated by a touch sensitive electronic button indicated by the subtle Triflow logo. A green halo light ignites when operational, turning red when the water treatment cartridge needs replacing and flashing red when the battery is running low. The battery provides back-up in case of mains electricity failure.
The 3 shiny taps are looked like steady sophisticated shapes are moored on peaceful water surface.
A shape shifting light that provides ambient diffusion of energy efficient compact fluorescent and LED light sources, Urchin has an irresistibly unique character that invites playful interaction. Its elastic movement and shifting form are akin to a sea creature, making the piece move as if alive. made from the same translucent white textile material as cloud softlight and textile softwall + softblock, these pieces complement each other to create fluid, sculptural environment.
A non-woven polyethylene material, trade name Tyvek©, it is 100% recyclable and made from 5 – 15% recycled content. Its lightweight paper look and feel is tear, UV and water resistant, making it durable to handle and maintain.
The textile material has a “class A” flame spread in North America. Documentation is available on request.
Handmade and sandblasted to create a smooth and soft
fabric like surface.
All the pendants vary in length to underline the impression of a malleable material and suggest a narrative.
The lights come in black, blue or most colours on request.
Blueprint and Claystation present a four-day interactive event: Decorate and build a chair from paper, and enter our competition to win a full-scale version!
Sorry, guys, I forgot to take a photo for the cutting plane behind the hundred tinny paper made chairs.
This year’s 100% Design main bar has been designed by Viable London. Better known for their furniture designs, this is the studio’s first bar commission.
The Main Bar at Earls Court is the centerpiece of 100% Design and the studio wanted to create visually striking yet not overbearing design, working with various material sponsors.
Both the inspiration and constraints for the design came from the materials themselves; Perspex and aluminium are commonly paired together in retail and exhibition environments but their usage tends to be restricted to standard panel constructions and signage.
By working with the materials, Viable London has used a folded hexagonal aluminium framework from Unibox and geometric shapes to create a 3D paneled surface that creates visual impact and defines the spaces.
The screens are arranged around a bar counter clad in seductive Midnight black Perspex, which complements the dark UPM Profi decking stretching the full 25m length of the space. Bute’s fabrics were selected for the upholstery for their beautiful blend of colours and textures that which compliment the concept of the Main Bar.
Even though both materials are recyclable, (having been witness to the frequent waste of materials at the end of exhibitions) Viable London was keen that the main structure of the bar be re-useable. The modular and de-mountable components have achieved this. All of the frames will be dismantled at the end of the show to be re-used in infinite formations for future shows, displays or exhibitions.

PERCEPTION OF COLOUR
2700 Pantone swatches will be laid out for 1000 members of the public to select colour from the whole Pantone range that, in their mind, best represent the 7 spectral colours, Pink, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Pruple.
Their choices will then be physically stuck onto 7 large wall mounted sheets of Aluminium, creating 7 large monochromes that will evolve over the course of the exhibition.
