Design Guild Mark
In 2015, the Robin Day 675 Chair was awarded a Design Guild Mark. The Design Guild Mark Awards promote excellence and raise the profile of British design and innovation. The award demands the highest standards in the design of furniture for volume production. Amos was invited to collect the award with Duncan Bull, Product Development Manager for Case.
In 2001-2002 Amos worked with client Twentytwentyone to realise the production of several ranges of furniture including Robin Day's 'Avian' range. Twentytwentyone launched the furniture at 100% Design and were awarded Manufacturer of the Year. It led to Amos being recommended and subsequently appointed as a consultant to the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation.
