Jablite Appoints Leading Designer for RCI Show Stand


Jablite, the innovative manufacturer of EPS insulation products, has appointed top London designer, Michael Sodeau, to create the Jablite stand at the RCI (Roofing, Cladding and Insulation) exhibition on 1 and 2 November 2017.

As Official Sponsor of the RCI Show, Jablite aims to create another “Show-Stopper” exhibit to follow on from the undisputed hit it had last year with the Jablite Cube.

Michael Sodeau has history of working with EPS (expanded polystyrene). In 2007 he designed a Pavilion made completely from EPS for the 100% Design exhibition. Now ten years on, he is taking on another EPS project…

“Expanded Polystyrene – EPS is a fascinating material; it is incredibly versatile and it is 98% air so it is a resource-efficient product” says Michael.   “That is always a huge surprise to people – and of course it is the air that makes it such an effective insulator.”

“EPS is lightweight, and safe to handle, making it very easy to work with; it’s not surprising it is used in film sets all over the world. So I was intrigued by the idea of designing with EPS again.”

“Plus, working with the manufacturer – Jablite – to create an exhibition stand that will be completely recycled into new insulation boards  after the Show is also a very appealing idea.”

Richard Lee, adds: “The RCI team is aiming to attract architects to the Show this year and I am sure they will be interested in a stand designed by Michael Sodeau who has work in the permanent collection in the V&A Museum and has won several design awards.”
