The Design Guild Mark Awards, now in its sixth year, “mark and reward the work of the finest designers working in Britain and the best of British designers working abroad” according to their UK-based patron, the Furniture Makers Company. Among 2013’s recipients is the Juno chair by James Irvine for Italian design brand Arper. Design Guild Marks reward excellence specifically in the design of furniture in volume production.
