Salmo Leather Nanai

There's something fishy about this snake skin

Nanai

It looks like reptilian skin, but the clue is in the name: Salmo Leather uses salmon skin to produce this organic textile called Nanai. Touting the product as ideal for upholstery and interiors last year, this year the company had a Nanai-clad BMW X6 on its stand to prove the point.

Salmo Leather Nanai

Supplied as skin with an average size of 600 x 150 mm or offered by the metre

Available in a range of colours, Nanai uses vegetable tanning treatments, avoiding the more traditional and polluting chromium processing. Taking the ethics a step further, all the skins used are from organically farmed salmon. So now you can enjoy a sensuous snake skin look, yet avoid an ethical crisis or the expense. Presumably, it has something to do with economies of scale.

Three Way Table Tennis

Jam Design, the company acting as creative director for this year's 100% Design event, included a rather unique feature. A Corian table was remodelled to enable visitors to play three-way table tennis.

Many items on show are prototypes or are not yet in mass production, so don't expect to pick up a bargain. It's cutting edge design event, only being open to the public on the last day. 100% Design is at Earl's Court, London and runs from 23rd to 26th September 2010. ®
