Mette based in the Glove Factory Studios in Holt, Wiltshire has been appointed to design and create a principal installation at 100% Design 2014. 100% Design is the UK’s largest contemporary design trade event and has formed a cornerstone of the international design scene over the last twenty years. The event is widely recognised for its significant part in establishing London as the design capital of the world. Mette has been commissioned to create four dedicated inspiration hubs which explore issues, trends and ideas for each industry sector across interiors, workplace, kitchen and bathroom and eco design and build. The 81sqm installation takes the form of a central inspiration, social and seminar space with demonstrations and talks from leading designers, will explore the resurgence of the designer-maker and the increasing mix of craft and technology in the future of contemporary product design. The concept has been aptly named ‘The Maker Carousel’. “As a multidisciplinary studio continually striving to develop new concepts and engaging experiences across brands, products and interiors, we are excited to develop this year’s theme, as not only does it position us at the forefront of industry developments, it resonates deeply with our journey as designer-makers ourselves,” says Caroline Santos, Creative Director, Mette. Each year the highly-coveted feature commissions are awarded to emerging and established studios which demonstrate a uniquely conceptual, innovative and forward-thinking approach to design. 2014 marks Mette’s second year of receiving this accolade from the world-class event. Mette’s 2013 commission, the ‘Farm Kitchen’ sponsored by Gaggenau, explored the integration of microagriculture into interior design. Mette’s installation achieved international recognition in leading design publications as well as being named as one of Icon Magazine’s three ‘Highlights of the Show’. “We are so proud to have made such a strong impact last year that Media 10 has once again invited our growing studio to work alongside the great names of the design world,” continues Caroline. “The 2013 commission was an excellent opportunity for us to raise our profile to an international design audience, and to have been asked to return in 2014 confirms that we offer a notable contribution to this globally-respected show and spark meaningful ideas and conversation within the design industry and its audience.” 100% Design 2014 is held at Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre, 17-20 September 2014.
