Celia Quattrociocchi from Woodmark nominates Keith Melbourne because
‘Keith has a design sensibility which is refreshing. He reaches the welcomed balance of ensuring his product can be manufactured, is getting the best out of current technology that is not cost prohibitive, ensuring the materials required are easily got and available and that his design has minimal impact on the environment. The result is good functional product in an age where this is exactly what is required.’
