Ercol recipient of coveted Design Guild Award

The prestigious Design Guild Mark Award, introduced by the Furniture Makers Company, is a great accolade for any furniture designer.  It is awarded to designers working in Britain or British designers working abroad, acknowledging the best qualities in furniture design and furniture making for volume production. In recent years Ercol has been very proud of its success in attaining the Design Guild Mark for many of their products.

In 2014 the Romana large sideboard designed by Dylan Freeth was presented with this well respected award and a year later in 2015 the Svelto stacking stool designed by Lisa Gould-Sandall was also awarded this accolade.

Tomoko Azumi said of her award, “I am very glad to receive the award in recognition of my long term collaboration with ercol, and this acknowledgement of British design excellence. I would like to celebrate this together with ercol's technical staff, as the achievement would not have been possible without them.”
