100% Sustainable? 2007 - ‘101 Approaches to Sustainable Design’ (IF:Lab, 2007)
The 100% Sustainable? event 2007 was a mix of interactive exhibits, live debates and creative industry workshop sessions with contributions from leading figures from across design with intension of generating practical usable strategies to sustainable design that will be published for use by the whole industry.
A series of discipline specific ‘live’, creative workshop events facilitated by leading creative practioners engaged, connected and enlightened individuals from across the full spectrum of visitors to the 100% Design Show, all housed within an 80-seat purpose built environment. The schedule of workshops disciplinary themes over the four days included; Furniture; Lighting and Interior Design; Fashion and Textiles; Architecture and the Built environment; Product and Industrial Design; and Materials. These were contributed to by leading designers and corporate representatives including: ICI, Dalsouple, Phillips, Frog and Sprout Design, William Warren, Kate Fletcher, Keep and Share, Annie Sherbourne, Trannon Furniture, Tejo Remy, Bill Dunster, Fielden Clegg and Jason Brugges. As experienced practitioners, each contributor told their story in the village green type environment created for the event. They also then contributed a single useable design strategy to the collection of 101 Approaches to Sustainable Design which were gathered over the four days. The event also provided an opportunity to exhibit six experimental products formed at a “Product Life Workshop” earlier in the year.
