McCabe Design are running up to a busy week, with member’s of the team on their way to MIPTV in The Palais de Festival in Cannes, to supervise the construction of exhibition stands for a host of our clients from as far reaching countries as Canada, America, England and Iran. We’re looking forward to our 6 monthly meetings with our clients, and to a smooth build up to what is a very busy week for them. If you are one of the busy exhibitors, keep an eye out for Orla, Ali and Ken as they work their way around the Palais, if you have any enquiries we’ll be happy to stop and have a chat 🙂
McCabe Design prides itself on being valued consultant in both the interiors and exhibition design fields, and as part of this we are looking forward to taking care of a number of important clients at this years MIPCom market at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes. Members of our exhibition team will travel to France this week in preparation for the markets commencement next Monday 5th October. We have been involved in this vibrant entertainment content exhibition for many years and we continue to grow, depending on the quality of our design, build and customer service. To see some of our clients stands in more detail, please visit www.mod.ie, and we look forward to meeting you there!
With tired feet, excited minds and packs full of business cards and brochures, we traipsed away from this years 100% Design. But we had huge smiles on our faces as we stepped back out into the blistering sunshine that September afternoon, as we felt fulfilled by what we had encountered. Broken into 3 sections, this years exhibition covered 100% Design, 100% Materials & Details and 100% Futures. We were most impressed by the representation of countries such as Norway and Poland who had showcased their countries talented designers, and we were also intrigued by some work presented by recent English graduates, who’s ideas were less commercial but highly innovative. The GrayConcrete stand was impressive in its simplicity, and we are going to look for ways to include this material into our future designs (www.grayconcrete.co.uk) and we enjoyed the craftsmanship and retro stylings of &Then Design (www.andthendesign.co.uk)
On we ventured to the Truman Brewery of the now hip Brick Lane in North East London, to TENT London. A younger brother of 100% Design, this exhibition combined innovative furniture and digital presentations. We found this part of the festival particularly enjoyable, not only due to its fine location, but due to the number of unique and well crafted products within. Much more focused on up and coming talent and ideas, we took away details of Zoe Murphy’s bespoke printed furniture (zoemurphy.com) and of an ingenious new gadget called Wattson that will help us all focus on the amount of electricity we are using around our homes (http://www.diykyoto.com/uk).
Though the exhibition had been described as smaller this year, we felt the quality of products on display were high. So many studios around London were also part of the design trail, really enhancing the feel that the entire city was involved in the festival this year. We look forward to getting our teeth into some of the new products and to visiting again next year…and hopefully to be greeted by the same wonderful weather!
It has been a busy month in McCabe Design Partnership, and we are again proud to announce completion of a number of key projects for the company. We have been involved in updating the interior branding of four Honda showrooms, in Dublin, Navan and Cork. Our longstanding partnership with Honda Ireland has continued successfully and we are looking forward to future projects together.
We have also undertaken the role of exhibition designers for Enterprise Ireland’s current International Markets Week exhibition. We have worked with the team in putting together spaces in Shannon and Dublin, which are currently bustling with business representatives from around the country. International Markets week provides opportunity to companies to meet with Enterprise Ireland’s international marketing staff to discuss development in global markets. We will hope to post photo’s from this project soon.
So at last we have joined the masses and entered the world of blogging! We are looking forward to updating both our clients and design-led minds on our work and the work we admire from around the world. Not only will you see photo’s of our new projects, but discussion points on manufacturing techniques, and comments on new designs from leading designers around the world. We look forward to starting this news forum and hope we can encourage debate 🙂
Come back soon to read about how this experiment unfolds!
