Exhibition Stands

Interbuild is a prime example of how exhibition stand design evolved over the early 1900's from hand-built to pre-fabrication. From simple structures to architect-designed spaces. From the traditional to the space-age imagination run riot. There's something ingenious about making steel and bricks look exciting and this was the golden age of experimentation.
