MEET THE ICONS OF DESIGN WINNERS!

We had so many fantastic entries for our #wdsiconsofdesign challenge, we picked 2 winners!

Winner #1 – Circle of Life

A structural free-standing framework with hanging recycled plastic curtains, the sustainable answer to partitioning walls. An innovative freestanding, circular meeting pod that is elegant, sustainable and flexible. This pod uses curtains to allow flexibility and style.

Winner #2 – Swell

Swell is a lightweight, acoustic wall cladding solution with a unique height of 2.7m that offers a horizontally seamless solution.

Reminiscent of a wave, Swell introduces a tactile softness into the workplace indicative of loose curtaining; a timeless wall-finish with both acoustic and environmental properties. Swell is made from 12mm EchoPanel® which offers superior acoustic qualities, eco-innovation and is made from 60% recycled PET bottles.

For every 1000 sheets of EchoPanel® manufactured, approximately 4.2 tonnes of post-consumer waste PET is diverted from landfill or our oceans; to date, over 230 million plastic bottles have been repurposed. In addition, Swell also offers low VOC and meets Environmental certificate ISO14001.

Designed by Jones & Partners and The Collective Agency, Swell is manufactured locally in the UK using state of the art tooling techniques, and was recently awarded the Made In Britain certification in support of local manufacturing, commerce and innovation.
