Design London Award


Winner: Rory Mullins

Title of work: Turnaround Chair

University: Kingston University


The judges were impressed with the craftsmanship, concept and commercial viability of the turnround chair. As a stackable, multi-functional and stand-out product, the judges believe that it has lots of potential for specification across the hospitality industry.


The winner will be rewarded with stand space at Design London (21-24 September), the largest destination for contemporary design during London Design Festival. The winner will have the chance to showcase their products alongside some of the industry’s most sought-after brands and position themselves in front of architects and designers.
