RSA Student Design Awards


We’re very happy to be sponsoring the RSA Student Design Awards once again this year and would like to congratulate all students who have just received this prestigious award.

The Student Design Awards task emerging designers with real briefs to create solutions for the social, environment and economic issues that are at the top of the news and social agenda.

We have a long history with the RSA Awards, with a number of our designers having previously won, and are pleased to support this initiative and help create stronger bonds between design education and industry.

Further details on this year’s winners

Chaos Contained


We’re delighted to host “Chaos Contained, Paintings by Boo Mitford”, the first solo exhibition by the London-based contemporary artist. The exhibition showcases the artist’s investigation into the tumultuous nature of paint and the personality of colour over the period 2005 – 2015.

Mitford explains: ‘Paint has every inclination to be unpredictable — it’s a bit of a wild child. Through fine adjustments of volume, situation and strength, I can create a vivid painting of oscillating colour. It is the nature of paint to want to escape. Sometimes colours combine harmoniously, sometimes they fight like hell. The capricious nature of paint is what fascinates me, and what I strive to explore through my work.’

Chaos Contained runs from 15 May to 12 June, Monday to Saturday 10am to 6pm, excluding Bank Holidays.

Crystal Cabin Award winners


We are proud to announce that we have won a prestigious Crystal Cabin Award with Embraer for our design of the E2 jets.

Described as the Oscars of the aviation industry, the award, which we won in the Industrial Design and Visionary Concepts category, is testament to the great partnership that we have built with the Brazilian manufacturer over many years.

We worked closely with Embraer’s engineering team to overhaul the aircraft interiors of the new generation short haul fleet.

A big congratulations to the whole team!

10 years of the Airbus A380


Airliner World has just published a special issue on the Airbus A380 to mark 10 years since the jumbo jet first rolled out.

Finalists in Tomorrow’s Train Design Today Competition


We’re delighted to announce we have been selected as finalists in the Future Railway’s competition ‘Tomorrow’s Train Design Today’, which is run with the Department for Transport and the Royal Institute of British Architects.

Paul comments: ‘This is a much needed competition. It’s imperative that we find a long term solution to tackle the big issue of rail overcrowding, to alleviate pressure on the system, improve passenger experience, quality of life and value for money.’

Happy Chinese New Year


We wish our friends in China and all around the world a very happy and prosperous New Year.

New Aircraft Interiors for Korean Air


Our latest aircraft interiors for Korean Air have just been released. Our designs for the new Prestige suite will debut on the airline’s A330-300.

The designs are part of a long term programme we are working on with the airline. The new suite optimises space and comfort, with privacy available at the touch of a button.

The new seats and layout allow each passenger to have direct aisle access. Seat pitch has been increased to 87 inches (up 12 inches from the previous suite), and the armrests can fold flat, increasing seat width to 22.5 inches. The suite also features an ottoman, traditionally a First Class cabin feature.

E2 Jet launch in Singapore


Paul was in Singapore last week with Embraer to launch the widely acclaimed E2 jet to the South East Asian market. We have been working closely with the Brazilian manufacturer’s in-house engineering team to design the new aircraft interiors.

Dream House


Paul has built his take on a room for a dolls’ house as part of the V&A Museum of Childhood’s exhibition “Small Stories: At Home in a Dolls’ House”. The exhibition explores the stories behind some of the UK’s best loved dolls’ houses and features 20 unique rooms by contemporary British design luminaries.

A version of his room — ‘The Longest Table in the World’ — is currently exhibited in our showroom window on Great Portland Street in London’s West End. So do drop by to have a look and go to the exhibition in Bethnal Green for the full dolls’ house experience. (Photo: V&A Museum)
