Pencil This In is all the things you’d want to do this Monday through Thursday. This week we have ambient after work beats at DADA for you, a pub quiz for the smartasses, pink drinks and raw fish for girls, and a highlight for lovers of modern furniture. The contemporary furniture designs at the 100% Design Shanghai exhibition will disappoint you if your idea of a perfect interior at home resembles Versailles, but if you like the fancy crazy “because we can” modern design, mark it in your calendar!
Read on for all the details, or check out our calendar for more!

The Geisha acknowledges that girls also need to eat and offers buy one get one free deals on sushi rolls and desserts.

100% Design Shanghai @ Shanghai Exhibition Center
If you can’t get enough of IKEA and the more upscale manifestations of home interior, you definitely wanna check this one out: 100% Design is an exhibition of jury-selected contemporary interior design products from illumination and furniture to wall and floor designs. There are a lot of quite artsy and eccentric design products, so feel free to visit the exhibition for fun even if you’d never consider to go there to shop for your own place. You just need to register here and it’s free to get in. And in case you wonder where it is, you most likely know the Shanghai Exhibition Center already: It’s that massive Euro-style temple with the wacky red Commie star pole on top. Exhibition from Nov 8-10.
Free with RSVP // 9:30am-5:30pm (5pm on Sat) // 1333 West Nanjing Road (南京西路1333号)
