    Showing at Clerkenwell Design Week until the 23rd May, Knightsbridge Furniture (Farmiloe Building: Stand VW17) is presenting the innovative line-up of seating and tables for the corporate and hospitality sector which the company has developed under its Design at Knightsbridge brand. Applications range from reception and lounge areas to meeting rooms, contemporary work spaces and breakout zones. Highlights of the display include the new Sorrento sofas, armchairs and swivel chairs, where a simple elegance is epitomised by the distinctive arc sweeping from arms to back. The Sorrento range is seen alongside the latest additions to the Lucia collection, which now extends from subtly retro-referenced upright chairs to compact club chairs, armchairs and sofas, all available with under-frames in either natural timber or sinuously curving wire. Both the Lucia and Sorrento collections have been created exclusively for Knightsbridge by design consultant James A Wright:

    Thanks to its in-house product development team, Design at Knightsbridge is able to maintain a focussed design-led ethos, balancing traditional craftsmanship with advanced technology and materials to produce some of the finest British-made furniture available across the international corporate sector. Much of the current portfolio is the result of research and consultation with clients – including both specifiers and end-users – enabling new collections to meet the precise needs of individual market sectors in terms of quality, comfort, style and functionality.

    All Design at Knightsbridge seating and tables are manufactured at the company’s headquarters in Bradford using timber from renewable sources. Knightsbridge Furniture also demonstrates its commitment to sustainability through FSC, PEFC and FISP certification, ISO 14001:2004 accreditation for its environmental management system and BS EN ISO 9001:2008 quality management accreditation.
