Design Guild Mark, awarded by The Furniture Makers’ Company, returns to 100% Design (19-22 September) with an unmissable feature (Stand L310) celebrating and championing the very best in British design.

Thirteen of this year’s awarded pieces will be on display at the exhibition, showcasing the current and emerging trends from the contract and domestic furnishing market.

In addition, the Design Guild Mark will be hosting a talk with Paul Kelley, designer of the Magnetic Copper Cube and winner of the Jonathan Hindle Prize for Excellence (Furniture category) at the exhibition’s Forum area on Friday 21 September at 3.00pm.

Paul will talk about the ingenuity of his novel design, how it came to be and the impact of being awarded both a Design Guild Mark and the Jonathan Hindle Prize.

Rodney McMahon, Design Guild Mark chairman, said: “2018 has been a busy year for the Design Guild Mark with the integration of the new 2D category in addition to the Furniture category running for the 10th year.

“We would like to thank 100% Design and Media 10 for their continued support in helping us champion British design by inviting us to feature a selection of pieces awarded a Design Guild
Mark in 2018, as well as host a talk with one of this year’s Jonathan Hindle Prize for Excellence winners, Paul Kelley.

“London Design Festival also marks the launch of the call for entries and we look forward to seeing what pieces are put forward for a Design Guild Mark in 2019.”
