Built as a "modular" system to accommodate various size stands across many shows including Europe. This one is at KBB Show in the UK at the NEC venue Birmingham. The stand went on to perform a "sterling job" in all the venues ... the client's own words.
As one of the leading global sanitary ware brands, Hindware has been creating ‘Lifestyle Statements’ for more than two decades, with a portfolio of world class product ranges. The brief was to be contemporary, and present their cutting edge products in a creative and open manner. This particular stand was presented to the trade at KBB Show at the NEC in the UK.
With more than 30 years of experience in the insulation industry, Knauf Insulation represents one of the fastest growing and most respected names in insulation worldwide. As befits their standing we designed a commanding 'double deck' stand for them at the Ecobuild Show at Excel, in London.
Kohinoor Mills Ltd is one of the largest vertically integrated textile manufacturers in India and started its successful journey back in 1949. The company has achieved annual sales in excess of US$140M to customers based in the Americas, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia. This stand had to represent a design-led expanding company on a global scale: the site was the largest in the "Asia" halls - and still is, as we partnered on a three year contract at the largest textile show on the calendar - Heimtextil at the Frankfurt Messe - just one of a dozen Asian companies we partner with at this show.

Mustaqim has a clear vision! - “Going Green” and adopting environmentally friendly and sustainable practices. As you might gather from the stand design - it's all about natural elements - the brief was to reflect the new corporate message and image and integrate it into the architecture of the stand, and they were "thrilled" at the outcome. Again at Heimtextil, Frankfurt ...and so we continue our relationship.
Working for British Ceramic Tile Ltd, the challenge was to build a house in 4 days, including the car on the drive! We set to work on ‘the house’ design and came up with the essence of a home with a driveway, double doors to the entrance with topiary! Inside we created a walk-through scheme for visitors to move from room to room, with tile displays depicting the aspects of the house; hallway, cloakroom, bathroom, lounge, kitchen and dining room, plus large fabric graphics for atmosphere.
Imagine a stand the size of half a football pitch with walls 5.5 metres high! That’s a lot of cubic metres. Three articulated lorries leave the workshop for Europe, and we have seven days to construct the stand on site at Messe Munchen. We land at a snowbound airport, and due to the weather we lose 1.5 days of site time. KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON! We put on some warm clothing and focus on the job in hand. With some very late nights and very early starts we came in on time.
One of the biggest challenges to date was overcoming weather conditions for nine stands in Brussels. Problem one: the diesel in the trucks had frozen overnight so we had to carry all the equipment from the trucks to each exhibition stand in the various halls … a very cold nightmare! With the floors down, structures up, lighting in place, and electrics done – Problem two: the water in the emulsion paint had frozen. So we had to replace the paint for the stands in all the different colour schemes – a few thousand brushstrokes later, we’d beaten the cold.
