Refreshing Places for Students to Freshen Up


Refreshing places for students to freshen up.

Students may be busy cramming for end-of-year exams but there’s no need to do the same with your changing and washroom solutions.

Whether new build, refurb or retrofit, bespoke furniture manufacturer Crown Sports Lockers think creatively about space constraints when planning supply and fitouts.

Changing areas and washrooms can prove a low procurement priority when high-visibility features such as cafes and learning resource centres take pride of place in attracting students but they are key to delivering an uplifting experience throughout the educational environment.

Crown specialise in carefully matching supply to demand to provide comfortable, quality facilities in a host of materials, finishes and colours – co-ordinated by a dedicated project manager with your traffic flow in mind.
We create changing areas students feel proud to use.

The Ninth Design Guild Mark Awards

The Furniture Makers’ Company announces awardees for the Design Guild Mark 2017 Award

The ninth Design Guild Mark Awards have been announced for an unprecedented total of 34 award recipients.

The prestigious Design Guild Mark is awarded by The Furniture Makers’ Company, the furnishing industry’s charity, in order to drive excellence and raise the profile of British design and innovation. The award recognises the highest standards in the design of furniture in volume production by the finest designers working in Britain, or British designers working abroad.


Alexander Gifford, Chairman of the Design Guild Mark, commented:

“Hosted across our own Furniture Makers’ Hall and Carpenters’ Hall, this year’s Design Guild Mark saw another record number of applicants, reflecting the high quality of entries we had hoped for. Once again, the entries were equally diverse, from contract to retail, from residential to hospitality and workplace, as were the applicants themselves. Chairing the judging process for the third year was a great honour, and watching the great minds in our industry critique the great output of British design was a real pleasure.”





Design Guild Mark is judged by a panel of leading industry professionals. Each member of the panel is from the furniture, hospitality, commercial, retail, or media industry.  Judges must ensure that each piece of furniture meets the criteria of:  excellence in design, materials, manufacture and function.
