Our Year in Review
A quick look back at some of our biggest moments from 2018.
2018 has been huge year for Icon and we are fortunate to have shared it with many wonderful clients, colleagues and contemporaries.
The most notable event of our year has to be the launch of We Design Silence. In summer, we officially joined forces with ABV SA Belgium. Under the new shared ownership of WDS Industries, we have now combined the expertise and capabilities of each business to offer a greater breadth of service to all our clients, both in Europe and here in the UK.
We have also been involved in several key events this year, attending the ever popular Clerkenwell Design Week back in May, then exhibiting at designjunction on the South Bank in September before heading to this year’s Orgatec in Cologne. The exhibitions were a chance to meet with a number of designers, architects and specifiers, showcase the We Design Silence products and also launch the third product in our Liberate Your Workspace trilogy: Bedouin.
Collaboration has been a central theme in 2018. We partnered with product designers BroomeJenkins to bring Bedouin to life and were thrilled to have it shortlisted for a 2018 FX International Interior Design Award in the category of best Public, Leisure or Office Furniture Product.
We also collaborated with award-winning architects Squire & Partners to create The Designers’ Dreamscape, a cutting-edge co-working installation for designjunction, The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust and RIBA London.
Our work has taken us all across the UK, Europe and the US and we have delivered a huge variety of projects from straightforward off-the-peg screen installations to highly customised original solutions.
2019 is set to be another exciting year with plans for Clerkenwell Design Week, designjunction and new products already in the works.
Until then, we would like to thank all our clients and partners for a fantastic 2018 and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!
