Design Kaleidoscope

Cullen Dish Wall Light from Mullan Lighting.

100% Design has developed ‘Design Kaleidoscope’ as the theme for the 20th edition of the show, reflecting the diversity and rich history of the UK’s largest and longest running contemporary design event; The Kaleidoscope provides the inspiration across the show’s campaign and will inform both the talks programme and hubs at the show.

A specially commissioned exhibition will take centre stage at the show, displaying a series of exceptional pieces that have been launched at 100% Design since the show was first staged in 1995. The design kaleidoscope exhibition will showcase design excellence in a unique installation, bringing product and visual impact to the show in 2014.

Designed by Thomas Matthews the kaleidoscopes are created through the mirroring of products. Derived from the Greek kalos meaning ‘beautiful‘ and eidos meaning ‘form‘, Design Kaleidoscope looks at the observation and engagement with beautiful designs.


Delight in Light is the National Lighting Designer Competition, organised by the Lighting Industry Association. The award happens each year and strives to promote the very best in lighting design. With over 40 fixture designs submitted and nearly 6,000 votes cast, 8 finalists have been selected.

The finalist will exhibit their designs at 100% design where visitors to the show are invited to vote for their favourite design.

The top designs will go forward to present at the Public Final, held on 20th September. The Winner will be announced at 100% design.
