When St Hugh's College in Oxford were looking to commission a range of distinctive contemporary furniture for their fabulous new Dickson Poon China Studies Centre, they turned to Makers' Eye.
In this exciting and important commission we aimed to complement the subtle Oriental influence of the architecture in our Poon designs, bringing a pure, light feel to all the work.
The St Hugh's range was successful for us in winning both the national Wood Awards and a coveted Design Guild Mark.
Whilst requiring twelve solid oak refectory tables for a large room on the Dickson Poon ground floor they also came with the brief to be rigid in use, fully folding and quick to store.
This was quite a challenge, but one that was met by the development of a custom engineered double pin locking system.
This not only allowed the satisfying of the brief, but also complemented the signature design of our Dickson Poon range.
This outstanding table is now available in both folding and fixed configurations.
