100% Norway 2010 showcased innovative works from Norway's leading manufacturers and designers to the British market and built awareness of Norwegian design internationally.

New designs included the 365 Knitting clock by Siren Wilhelmsen, which knits a scarf as it turns — showing the passing of time in a different way; a sofa that converts into a meeting room for open workspaces "where you need a silent place"; and a white tablecloth that creates a pattern that only shows when you spill something on it.
