The British storage experts were proud to have been awarded its second Design Guild mark for BOB, the beautifully hand-crafted modular storage and display system.
Developed in collaboration with award winning British designer Paul Kelley, BOB’s infinite configurations can be adapted for any use and environment, whether at home or in the workplace. The collaboration unifies Kelley’s design innovations with the craftsmanship and manufacturing expertise of Bisley.
BOB, a first all wood product for Bisley, is meticulously hand crafted and features a clever system that uses technology friendly magnets to securely lock the modules together. The beauty is in the simplicity and playfulness of the design; cubes and units click together to form different arrangements, allowing the user to change the design of the system instantly, whenever they choose.
Helen Owen, Marketing Director at Bisley commented:
“We couldn’t be more delighted to be awarded a Design Guild Mark for BOB. Collaborating with Paul Kelley on such a unique project has been a fantastic experience for Bisley. Together we have created a timeless quality piece of furniture that is functional, easy to adapt and beautiful, which allows people the flexibility to design their own spaces and reconfigure it instantly if their needs change”.
