The Hub

The Hub Teaser

Relax, socialise, co-work

“The Hub”, designed by Wilson Associates, is an exciting new addition to the show.  

Responding to this year’s theme of ‘Social FlexAbility’, The Hub will be the place for co-working and networking, for quietly catching up with emails, or simply relaxing away from the busy exhibition floor. The inspiration for the space is a circle, a closed curve where not only do people come together in a shared experience but all the elements inside have been, or will be, recycled.

Circular ‘Eclipse’ light fixtures by Astro Lighting will circumnavigate the space; tables and seating – re-upholstered if second hand – will be from Knightsbridge Furniture, and Floor tiles will be supplied by Atlas Concorde.

“The space will be a lounge where everyone is welcome to convene and collaborate. A circle is a powerful thing as it evokes a sense of connection, equality, equilibrium, balance, unity and safety. Our goal is for the stand to be completely sustainable; every product will have been used, or will be used again. As a circle represents a cycle, we want to be able to maintain the geometry of recycling.”

Juan Carlos Rodriguez Artigas, Design Director of Wilson Associates.
