100% Design introduce The Central Bar18-Aug-2016
The Central Bar at 100% Design has legendary status within the UK design industry. As the place where you can feel like you’re standing at the centre of the industry the design approach to this space has always been critical part of how each of the shows feels.
The design team has brought together a stream of uprights with colour scales adding drama to the central space, defining the area and providing that moment of shelter in among the noise from across the show; a space to gather and plot the next steps!
The dramatic overhead installation is intended to provide a kinetic rhythm to this year’s show. By working with Kinetic Lights the mesmerising effect creates a feeling that visiting the Central Bar has not previously been experienced.
Aldworth James & Bond will be making and installing the ‘ripple’ above the bar, which reflects the sensory experience of visiting and networking at the Central Bar.
Located near the Central Bar, the Arper Bloggers Lounge will be a vibrant and welcoming area from where to connect with digital audiences, relax, enjoy a coffee and regain energies from the buzz of the fair. The space is reserved to digital press only and will be fully equipped with free wi-fi and charging points. Arper is a key location with Clerkenwell, and has a direct association with the Clerkenwell Presents feature within the Workplace hall, presented in association with our sister show, Clerkenwell Design Week.
