Robert Welch are proud recipients of four 2015 GOOD DESIGN

Presented in recognition of innovative and cutting-edge industrial, product, and graphic design from around the world the GOOD DESIGN™ award was created in Chicago in 1950 by former MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) curator Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., together with other pioneers of modern design. Now in its 65th year, GOOD DESIGN™ continues to recognise and honour the achievements of the best designers and world manufacturers for their pursuit of extraordinary design excellence.

We are now the proud recipients of four 2015 GOOD DESIGN™ awards for our best selling Helix Hurricane Lamp and Tealight Holder, Arden Cutlery, Abacus Candlesticks and Signature Magnetic Knife Rack. Selected from over 5000 submissions, the company design team has long been recognised for its approach to designing functional objects which possess a timeless elegance and the awards are a welcome recognition of their work. 

Helix and Abacus Candleholders

Like all Robert Welch products the Helix and Abacus Candle holders were designed by the in-house Robert Welch design team in Chipping Campden. Senior Designer Kit deBretton Gordon explained the inspiration behind the designs: " Using a seamless fusion of contrasting materials we hoped to achieve a classsic timeless elegance within these pieces." The popularity of these products has been company wide leading to a sell-out over the Christmas period and these items still continue to catch the eye of the most design savvy customer.
