Surface & Materials Show 2017
The essential show for specifiers returns to NEC Birmingham, October 10-12 2017
The countdown is on to all the variety and fascination of The Surface & Materials Show, the feast of colour, texture, pattern and high-performance finishes at UK Construction Week, which offers nine key exhibitions under one convenient roof.
There is much to discover from both leading names and emerging brands, and much to learn from an extensive programme of talks, demonstrations and CPDs.
Fascinating products to experience at the show range from elegant wallpaper in on-trend botanical themes from rising star Kit Miles Studio, to hi-tech grids for pergolas and ‘air walls’ by I-Mesh and woven wire solutions with a retro feel from Amron Associates. Innovators such as Pintark by Loco Design explore the use of texture in materials with beguiling coverings in leather and metal. For the best in exterior finishes look to Sant Anselmo and Flowcrete and for the glamour of metallic effects head to Ay yapi to discover SolideSignature.
Here’s a selection of the many innovative products and designs at this must-visit industry gathering:
L-80 black copper plated metal mesh and L-3 brass mesh, two woven wire mesh products installed around the lift in a renovated Victorian building by Squire & Partners. Bankers Wire by Amron Associates.
Ay yapi’s chemical-free coating procedure uses 100% natural metals, creating an ultra-thin yet water-proof, corrosion-resistant finish. It can be applied to any hard and soft surfaces that meet the adherence criteria, creating countless possibilities for interior and exterior use.
The Surface & Materials Show will also host informative talks, debates and CPDs from event partners, including BRE, Grimshaw Architects, The Design Concrete Centre, The Cambridge Graphene Centre, Canon 3D Printing, and Bath University among many other. Meanwhile, on the main stage at UKCW and three dedicated CPD hubs a key programme on building and fire safety will run.
The Surface & Materials Show will take place at NEC Birmingham, 10-12 October 2017 as part of UK Construction Week. Now in its third year, Surface & Materials will showcase the latest surface solutions for architects, interior designers, specifiers and industry professionals seeking a broad range of in¬novative and high-performance products.
Karak tiles by Sant Anselmo. This captivating repeating geometric pattern is inspired by the century-old Japanese raku technique. A combination of clay and loam mixed with quartz sand and fireclay, these tiles are retouched by hand after the designs are applied by silkscreening.
