Looking back on # DesignPopUp 2016

Looking back on # DesignPopUp 2016

As we near the end of our inaugural participation in Double S Events' DesignPopUp, Glasgow, we can already say with confidence that it has been a great occasion!  The Amos Beech team all thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the Parmesan and Prosecco evening, of course. (According to one of our team members Parma cheese is actually Dutch cheese with a little bit of Parma treatment, as is Parma ham he reckons, but we tend not to take him too seriously).

A sparkling welcome!

DesignPopUp @The Briggait

Sara and her team pulled off a great event again at The Briggait in Glasgow’s Merchant City.  A wonderful building with an abundance of natural light. It is a rare luxury to have an exhibition in a hall where you see the colours and surfaces of furnishings and textiles changing along with the time of the day.

The Briggait was the city’s fish market for over 100 years, fortunately is was just the incredible Parmesan that touched our senses.

Our stand

The acoustic panels from Friends of Wilson we displayed drew great interest from the visitors.  No wonder, they looked brilliant on the stand and they will contribute to an inspiring and relaxed office environment anywhere they're installed. Friends of Wilson architectural panels enhance interiors whilst reducing unwanted sound.

Iconic Soft Seating

One of the manufacturers we are showcasing on this year's DesignPopUp is Actiu from whom we have pieces from 3 different ranges: Badminton, Prisma & Longo.

Badminton (above) is a kind of throne that impresses with its size and shape and envelopes the user with comforting acoustic prowess.  It has a wide range of design possibilities thanks to the ability to select different colours, textures and finishes of both the shell and interior.  "The Badminton easy chair is pure concept.  It represents our strong commitment to sophistication, captured in a striking, immersive piece with a completely innovative design and architecture." Javier Cunado.

Prisma's finishes evoke a Scandinavian style, characterised by clean lines. Outwardly it hides complexity in its structure.  The junction of its top and legs, in a pyramidal shape, give the appearance of a single piece.  Elegance and minimalism merge in this range addressing today's work-spaces with warmth and distinction.

Longo (below) designed by Ramos & Bassols, is a system capable of taking your work level to the desired point that it fuses soft seating with the office using a platform from a robust structure but with a light aspect. Longo is a modular system consisting of sofas, operative and managerial desks with storage solutions to integrate too.  It stems from a solid extruded aluminium structure on which we attach the cast iron legs... the possibilities are endless. Longo is robust and robust it needs to be as we are always on the move:

An exciting element of the Parmesan and Prosecco evening was the arrival of the acrobats from Aerial Edge, also based at the Briggait, who we engaged to perform in true Actiu style.

Obviously only moving images can do justice to their performance:

Wilkhahn Trimension Taskseating

Talking about movement, you may have had a demonstration of the WilkhahnIN® chair? If not, don't worry below you can see the idea behind it:

If you have put your business card into the big glass bowl then you may even have won it, so watch this space! We will announce the winner within the next two weeks.

Pictures

Besides all the great design and products that were exhibited on #DesignPopUp 2016, it was above all a great event to meet colleagues, friends and industry peers. Business is all about people at the end of the day, so we gave our photographer the brief to capture human interaction:

Looking forward to seeing you all next year!
