New Design Group
New Design Group (formally Chorus Furniture) is a collective group who design and make brilliant contract furniture. Comprising of Ryan Furniture, Chorus Furniture, and Cambridge Park; they have the ability to offer a truly diverse range of high quality, beautifully made furniture products for a huge range of applications across the corporate and leisure markets. The current offering of soft seating, tables, chairs and breakout furniture has been created by UK designers Simon Pengelly and Mark Gabbertas for Chorus Furniture. Gabbertas came to the world of furniture design via advertising and later, cabinet making. His philosophy is to create character through simplicity. Similarly Pengelly believes in ‘quiet design’ that exhibits a character born of thoughtful regard for function, material, environment, intuitiveness and familiarity. To date, Chorus’ most successful design has been the Theo; a wooden framed high density chair that can be stacked up to 30 high and yet still be wheeled through a standard doorway. With a slim, elegant profile, the Theo was launched at Design Junction in London’s Victoria House. Theo went on to win the 2013 Wood Awards (Production-Made Furniture Category) and the coveted 2014 RedDot award for product design. Chorus Furniture is part of the New Design Group of companies.
