Taking place at Olympia London from 19-22 September, 100% Design sits at the heart of the newly formed West Kensington Design District. This year, metal is clearly a trending material across all areas of the design show, from urban rustic designs to luxe industrial pieces. As a proud media partner, we've shared five brands working with metal designs to look out for at the show. 

Proper Copper 

An emerging brand at this year's show, Proper Copper specialise in handcrafted copper homeware designs, including taps, handles and accessories. They'll be showcasing a range of their designs for commercial and home use, as well as new designs conceived from a recent focus on their kitchen taps.


Graypants is a Seattle and Amsterdam-based design studio known for their unique designs, particularly their lighting range. They will present their Chrona lights which combine spun brass and diffused acrylic. The series, available in both horizontal and vertical orientations, resembles the phosphorescent envelope that is found around stars.

Turnstyle Designs

British artisans of luxury door hardware, Turnstyle Designs have recently won the Queens Award for Enterprise 2018. At this year's show, they will be launching new products and finishes, including the stunning Matt Black Chrome.


British furniture manufacturers Rigg hand make dining tables, desks and coffee tables, creating their own ranges as well as bespoke items. They work with a range of materials to create their furniture designs, with metals such as zinc and steel frequently being used.
