The London Visual Merchandising and Display Show 2018

The Business Design Centre London

Walking into the great hall of the Business Design centre, I was taken aback to just how bright it is!  Having seen images online I was aware of the huge greenhouse like roof,  but the impact is obviously better seen in person. Daylight drenches the stands for today’s exhibition, into the showrooms outlining the second floor of the hall and even works its way down the ground floor premises showcasing online business solutions to printers and cutting machines you can watch. 
 
 
LONDON BUSINESS DESIGN CENTRE
 
This stunning structure seems to balance between Victorian splendour and contemporary design because of the huge amounts of glass used. The building was designed by  Joseph Paxton and opened as an Agriculture hall in 1862.
 
Islington BUSINESS DESIGN CENTRE

Super Stretch Scuba Fabric

Scuba Structure and Stretch

The structure of the fabric is created by a construction of a very fine double knit. One layer is knitted in one direction, one in the other. The fabric holds a good amount of stretch along the bias and horizontal points, with a small amount vertically. 

This simple method creates a very clever paradox as the fabric is both stretchy yet structurally it holds well. The stretch on the scuba is mainly along the bias and horizontal points, with a small amount on the vertical.
