Surface Design Show allows us to step into a world of ever-changing design, where innovation takes centre stage.

Mindful Living

The theme for 2024 is about balancing design intuition with analytical thinking to create meaningful experiences - to design well, and live well.

Surface Matter showcase new materials with contemporary aesthetics using waste to provide progressive design solutions, where visitors can see raw ingredients, reclaimed pieces and learn how to use the materials better. Find the latest in surface design, trends and talks about sustainable materials, take away samples of new product launches or make a Material Rescue by returning samples to us, and more at the Business Design Centre in London.

Product launches on show include new Durat colours and Shaped dimensional furniture crafted from recycled Richlite. Plasticiet open doors to a new world of marble as they get innovative with reclaimed plastic waste. And visitors can tune in to newly launched Pierreplume, acoustic panels that reinvent textile recycling.
