Design guild mark

The Design Guild Mark returned to trade show 100% Design this year, naming Simon Pengelly as its stand designer.

Part of The Furniture Makers’ Company, the Design Guild Mark exhibited a selection of furniture from the 19 Design Guild Mark 2016 winners that were announced earlier this year.

The prestigious Design Guild Mark is awarded by The Furniture Makers’ Company, rewarding excellence and raising the profile of British design and innovation, recognising the highest standards in the design of furniture.

Alexander Gifford, chairman of the Design Guild Mark, commented: “Many thanks to 100% Design for again inviting us to feature a selection of pieces awarded a Design Guild Mark in 2016. We are delighted that Design Guild Mark awardee Simon Pengelly has designed the feature stand at this year’s exhibition.”

Simon Pengelly added: “The growing status of the Design Guild Mark in our industry means it is a significant accolade for the work that we and our clients create, and is another important tool for us to use in promoting the pieces to specifiers and end users.”

The 100% Design Exhibition took place from 21-24 September 2016 at Olympia London.
