This year's winners of the Design Guild Marks have very diverse styles. Most of them are friends and partners of?Après Furniture and we congratulate them all for this recognition. Even if these awards are quite young, only in the 6th year, they put a stamp of excellence in British furniture designs. Here is an overview of the winners:

Vitra received a new recognition for the Tip Ton chair designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby. The innovative design of the skids on the Tin Ton rise at a nine-degree angle, this forward-tilt sitting position helps straighten the pelvis and spine and improves circulation to the abdominal and back muscles. It's also a colourful and happy addition to any space. Barber and Osgerby also designed the Sofa Collection manufactured by Knoll International, a range of soft seating which offers a relaxed, contemporary attitude toward interior design.
