The product range that stood out most was the lighting including lighting made from reclaimed materials in the Phillipines; the country that stood out, for a second year, was Chile – a force to be watched for the future.
One of the best stands was the Macallan stand, showcasing not only good whisky but the design of its latest bottle and packaging. It is good to see the whisky company so focussed on design and the arts, building on its photography of Annie Leibovitz and the Masters of Photography competition
