Surface Design Show is a lot more than a 3-day show every February. Throughout the year we hold a series of evening presentations exclusively for our audience of architects and designers.

Our 2016 programme began in May at the fantastic Interface Showroom in London’s Clerkenwell. Michael Pawlyn of Exploration presented to some 80 architects and designers on Biomimicry in Architecture

Hosted by manufacturers and suppliers SDS Presents…introduces some of the most sort-after design gurus to provide the evening’s presentation. Recent speakers have included Per Nimer of Akzo Nobel, Paul Cocksedge of Paul Cocksedge Studio and Oliver Heath of Heath Design.
