100% Design London came to an end this past weekend and now we are left tipping our hats to the organisers. We’ve selected some of the show’s highlights, from the 40 metre tunnel of lights to the fresh pieces unveiled. Read on to see some of the highlights we’ve selected.

On day 1, early visitors were treated to a grand opening, provided by an impressive light installation, ‘Collider’.

The installation ‘Collider’ was created specifically for 100% Design by Neil Musson and Jono Retallick and had a great acceptance within the twitterverse covering the event, live and virtually.

Dezeen Live was one of the most popular, curated to provide a mixture of insight, intelligence and entertainment, the shows featured a host of bright young talents and established figures. Each day, Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs interviewed leading figures from the design world, including journalists, writers or thinkers who helped pinpoint key movements and trends emerging during this London Design Festival.

The 4th and last day was marked by the seminar ‘The World, The Future and Everything’ by Simon Woodroffe, the founder of the Yo Sushi, Yotel and now Yo!Home. You might think the title is too vague, but the conversation revolved around how he got his ‘YO!’, about facing the comfort zone, things to do before you die and ‘YO! Everything Else’.
