A Deep Dive Into sixteen3
This year we’re getting to know the people behind the brands, with a series of blogs introducing you to our 2019 exhibitors. We’ve asked some of the world’s most creative minds what inspires them the most, why they’re exhibiting, and what we can expect from them at designjunction 2019.
In this post we speak to sixteen3, a specialist designer and manufacturer of stylish, high quality, upholstered seating, perfectly suited to enhancing any environment.
What inspires sixteen3 designs?
Anything and everything! The starting point for new products can vary, but material choices, manufacturing processes and the changing ways in which workplaces are used have all had a big impact on our portfolio.
What is your favourite product you’ll be showcasing at designjunction and why?
We’re excited to show our new lounge range, ‘Reece’, for the first time! We’ve taken a completely different approach to the development of this sofa system to create something that is a soft, welcoming range whist using innovative, environmentally friendly materials and drastically reducing the amount of raw materials used.
Describe sixteen3’s style in 3 words
Simple, adaptable & friendly.
Why are you exhibiting at designjunction 2019?
Having never taken part in the London Design Festival before we thought it would be a great opportunity to present to a wider audience. designjunction especially appealed to us due to its central location, great mix of exhibitors and laid-back, creative feel.
What can visitors expect from you at the show this year?
Expect to see some of our established pieces shown alongside two brand new product ranges, with a strong emphasis on using recycled materials to reduce the environmental impact of what we do, combined with stylish finishes and colours.
What advice do you have for a designer just starting out?
Never underestimate to power of collaborative working to get ideas off the ground.
