Boss Design is all about a quality, solutions-based approach to commercial furniture. Working to that mantra, the company has continued to go from strength to strength, with 2018 being a standout year of achievements (and we’re not even at the end of it yet!)
New furniture launches, plenty of tradeshows and some awards thrown in for good measure. We want to take a look at what the UK brand has been up to, and where it looks like they’re heading.
Boss Design is changing the conversation around UK innovation. Just like Jaguar has done for the car market, Boss Design understands that there is plenty of design talent that simply needs to be nurtured.
It was this way of thinking that led to the development of an in-house R&D and product design team. By investing and continually growing the in-house capabilities, Boss Design has pushed ahead with innovation.
Now known for its team of high profile designers, engineers, model makers and upholsterers, Boss Design is able to not only constantly release new designs into the marketplace, but offer an expansive offering of bespoke services.
But what has happened as a result of all this?
Throughout 2018, Boss Design has been actively spreading into new markets. Starting with Workspace Dubai in March. The Middle East tradeshow was a first for the UK brand where they showcased a full range of products to a hungry region.
When commenting on the debut, Boss Design’s export sales director, Andy Watson, shared, “We are fully committed to the Middle East. While all of our products are British designed, we have been manufacturing them in Dubai for over a decade, and we also have a prestigious showroom in the heart of the city.”
In May, Boss Design was able to put its wares on display on home turf at Clerkenwell Design Week. Having already exhibited at the annual design week, 2018 was all about personal workspace solutions. Understanding the increasing demand for quieter, more focused workplaces, Boss Design has come up with a new furniture solution which stole the show – Mango.
Not long after Clerkenwell Design Week, the team then took up its place at the annual NeoCon event in Chicago.
While at NeoCon, the Boss Design team received a Gold Award for its ATOM seating system. A prestigious prize, the Gold Award in Furniture Collections for Collaboration category proves that hard work truly does pay off.
ATOM, designed by Simon Pengelly, is a modular seating system with sinuous curves and thoughtful accessories. ATOM is another product that is due to land on our shores soon.
But the Gold Award at NeoCon hasn’t been the only prize awarded to the British brand. Earlier in the year, Boss Design picked up a Design Guild Mark for its soft seating range Manta.
The Design Guild recognises the highest standards in British furnishings. Manta is a true reflection of the company’s early investment in R&D and upholstery. The design combines fabric with leather, which creates a contrast between the internal and external contours.
We may only be just past halfway through 2018, but if the second half is anything like the first, then Boss Design is in for a tonne more awards, shows and innovations. And we can’t wait to see it!
