100% Sustainable 2007 'Approaches to Sustainable Design'
The new research generated in 2006 fed the content of a ‘product life workshop’ which was formed of 22 designers, behavioural scientists, material specialists and students whom responded directly to six key themes generated via the data gathered at the 100% Sustainable? 2006. The workshop resulted in the formation of six new experimental design methodologies and physical prototypes for domestic electronic products which intern were taken back to 100% Sustainable? to form part of the event space for 2007. Under the theme of '101 Approaches to Sustainable Design' 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 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 a 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 and were contributed to by leading designers and corporate representatives which included individuals and companies such as ICI, Dalsouple, Philips, Frog and Sprout Design, William Warren, Kate Fletcher, Keep and Share, Annie Sherbourne, Trannon Furniture, Tejo Remy, Bill Dunster, Fielden Clegg Architects 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.
