Glasgow, always a delight! What a fantastic time we had in June: it was the 6th edition of #DesignPopUp Glasgow: with a mixture of new and long-time exhibitors.
The spectacular Briggait venue looked fantastic, filled with the latest products, trends and innovations in the flourishing specification market from a wide range of suppliers. We enjoyed collaborating with other partners such as Duraflor flooring and alongside media publishers Urban Realm, adding a flourish of Benholm greenery, showcasing our newest products.
We enjoyed networking, keeping up-to-date with the latest developments in the market and hearing from industry leaders including Aline Browers, Senior Interior Designer at HLM Architects and David Cameron, Director at Atelier Ten. Their perspectives on hot topics including Future Thinking in Workplace Design were particularly thought provoking.
As the event has a real focus of upcoming trends, we set about bringing the outdoors in, heavily influenced by what we are seeing coming through from designers. There is a definite move towards an aesthetic with nature as its inspiration, using earthy colours and textures like wood, stone and metallics - straight from the world around us. This biophilic design trend encompasses our increasing awareness of the environment around us. Sustainability, upcycling and taking care of the planet perfectly compliments the current office design focus on employee health and wellness.
The introduction of elements like these can have a big impact on spaces. Making them feel warmer and more welcoming. We love the tones and gleam of the real shell planters and the luxe finish and clean lines of the gold foil effect on white.
The CPD area was a fantastic space thanks to 2-T Joinery and their beautifully installed curved seating space which lent itself perfectly to another liberal splash of our finest greenery for a more intimate feel.
Luckily we brought a good supply of Benholm seedboms - our gift to attendees to take home which proved as popular as ever!
Shake it, soak it, throw it, grow it!
Our little guerrilla gardening grenades are headed far and wide, hopefully making the world a greener place.
We'd love to see your seedbom blooms - Join the green gang and share your photos using the hashtag:
