For the fourth year in a row, the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in London is organising 100% France, the French pavilion at the 100% Design trade show. The pavilion will occupy stand D30 at the trade show, which will be held at Earl’s Court (in London) from 22 to 25 September 2011, and will showcase 10 French designers, three of whom are returning exhibitors.

“The scenography of 100% France was designed by Lucien Murat, who graduated from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, in London, in 2010: 100% Design represents an opportunity for young French talent to be unveiled outside France, in accordance with the role of VIA,” says Gérard Laizé, CEO of VIA (the French association for the Valorisation of Innovation in Furnishing).

The companies that UBIFRANCE will host on the 100% France pavilion are listed below. Further details can be provided on request.

Atelier Polyhedre, a French ceramics studio that was founded in 2004, develops quirky, yet quality tableware and decorative pieces in a range of styles, from minimalist to baroque. Each item is handcrafted by the designers in their riverside workshop, using traditional fine-craft techniques.
