Surface Design Show 2015

If you are looking for some innovative surfaces, London is the place to be between 10 and 12 February. The annual Surface Design Show is being held in the British capital’s Business Design Centre. With over a hundred exhibitors, you can be sure to find some interesting solutions concerning flooring, wall covering, tiling and even lighting. Founded in 2010, the Surface Design Show is now a mainstay in the British architectural design landscape, with thousands of visitors every year.

2014 Light School
 
Following last year’s success, they are also bringing back Light School, a programme designed to educate visitors about light and lighting innovations. The Surface Design Show couldn’t be complete without the accompanying Surface Awards, recognizing excellence and innovation in multiple categories. The Awards will be presented at lunchtime on Thursday 12th February at the Surface Design Show by Helen Berresford, Head of ID:SR, Sheppard Robson’s award-winning interior design group. Browse through some of the projects that made it to the finals below.

Drift by Giles Miller Studio
 
Giles Miller Studio makes some of the most jaw-dropping surfaces we have seen in a long time. Working with hard-wearing materials, such as ceramic and stainless steel, they are crafting 3D tile systems that can be used to create imaginative graphics. Drift, pictured above, is a project for one of their clients in Dubai.

The ground-floor reception of Buckley Building
 
The Buckley building by Buckley Gray Yeoman is a large, lofty commercial building that was converted from an old industrial warehouse complex. According to Matt Yeoman, a senior partner of the firm, the selection of the specific metal and stone surfaces involved careful planning and multiple international trips. This is clearly reflected in Buckley Gray Yoman's construction, as it is a tastefully executed, modern building, with supreme attention to detail.

The Folly Lane campus of Hereford College of Arts
 
The façade of Hereford College was nominated in the exterior lighting and surfaces category. The building by Hewitt Studios is clad in a combination of local timber and anodised aluminium panels, subtly reflecting its immediate environment. The spacey and well-lit properties of the campus make Hereford a college we would have loved to study at.

Lee Simmons' Grandioso door
 
Grandioso by Lee Simmons is no ordinary door. Inspired by the antique technique of rusticated-verniculated-ashlar casing, the surface of the door presents a highly irregular and very unique pattern. The purpose of this technique in renaissance buildings was to give a kind of visual grounding to the structure. This was juxtaposed by smooth finished masonry on the upper floors. Grandioso works with a similar narrative. Rather than just being an ordinary door, it offers a grand foundation to the London building where it is installed.

Pavegen's clean energy tiles
 
Last, but not least, we would like to mention Pavegen, who might not have received a nomination, but are clearly winners in our books. They are an innovative clean tech company, who manufacture tiles that can harvest the kinetic energy produced by footsteps and convert it to electricity. The energy can then be stored in batteries, or used to power applications. They are currently looking for investors in order to achieve mass production and equate the cost of their tiles against standard flooring solutions. Let’s hope they are successful.
