    The Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers states that “The Furniture Makers Company has introduced the Design Guild Mark to reward excellence in the design of furniture in volume production.By the award of this Guild Mark for designs which meet the Company’s criteria, the designers will receive due recognition and the industry will be made more aware of the importance of investment in design. It will mark and reward the work of the finest designers working in Britain and the best of British designers working abroad. Numbered Design Guild Marks will be awarded to the designers of pieces or ranges of furniture in volume production for retail or contract sale which are judged to achieve excellence in respect of the criteria.”

    Two years in the making and designed by Broome Jenkins, starting with cardboard modelling and progressing to rapid prototyping, the new Meet-U® meeting table system from Burgess Furniture includes simple features to allow for agile working and modern technology.

    Carefully designed with the user in mind, a variety of top shapes – including rectangles, squares, triangles and quadrants – link together to form the perfect layout for any meeting room environment. The full range of tables can be further complemented by bridging units, minimising the number of table legs needed and so allowing more people to sit in total comfort around the table layout.

    Presented by Joe Gould from Broome Jenkins, who worked with us on the project, and who were best placed to highlight the selling features of the system to the prestigious judging panel, the Meet-U went on to win an award.
