Bespoke furniture designer, Neil Stevenson of NEJ Stevenson, will be joining a lively panel discussion as part of the industry-renowned Talks programme at 100% Design on Friday 22nd September.
Neil is one of several design experts speaking at this year’s event, taking place at Olympia London from 20th-23rd September, as part of London Design Festival. Entitled Handmade in Britain, the panel discussion will focus on British craftsmanship. The discussion will feature panellists such as Justyna Medon from Addicted to Patterns, the printmaker and surface decoration specialist, who will join Neil Stevenson for the talk. Each speaker will share their individual experiences and creative influences, and discuss the importance of British makers, designers and craftspeople to the design industry, as well as to the economy.
100% Design returns for its 23rd edition this year, welcoming hundreds of designers and exhibitors to learn, explore and showcase the very best in design detail and craftsmanship. As the largest design trade event for industry professionals in the UK, 100% Design features bespoke installations, a showcase of world-leading brands and an unrivalled talks programme.
The theme for this year’s event is Elements, which will explore the fundamentals of the design process, taking into account the origin, component parts, materials used and the processes of development that lead to a finished design product. A full programme of expert talks will take place again this year, with a second programme focussed on professional development in The Forum in Design and Build, delivering practical advice to designers.
Neil Stevenson, founder and MD of NEJ Stevenson, says: “I’m thrilled to be joining 100% Design this year for what looks set to be a fantastic discussion. I look forward to sharing my insights and experiences with the other panellists and I hope the audience will find it an inspiring session.”
