BOB wins Product of the Year at the Mixology Awards 2019

We’re thrilled to announce that Bisley won Storage Product of the Year at last night’s Mixology Awards 2019!

Developed in collaboration with British designer Paul Kelley, BOB is the first all wood product that Bisley has produced. Meticulously hand crafted, BOB features a uniquely clever system that uses technology friendly magnets to securely lock the modules together. We’re proud of 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. The collaboration unifies Paul Kelley’s design innovations with the craftsmanship and manufacturing expertise of Bisley.

Robin Bayliss, Group Sales Director commented:

“We couldn’t be more delighted to win Storage Product of the Year at the Mixology Awards. Collaborating with Paul Kelley, the designer of BOB, on a unique project has been a fantastic experience for Bisley. Together, we have created a timeless, simple, quality piece of furniture that is functional, easy to adapt and beautiful. BOB allows people the total flexibility to design their own spaces and reconfigure it instantly and infinitely. This marks a significant new direction for Bisley since we opened our wood factory to launch a fun, yet classic, wooden product. BOB is the start of a furniture roadmap of revolutionary adaptive storage solutions from us.”

Paul Kelley added:

"The idea behind BOB was to create a piece of furniture which, through the use of materials and the simplicity of its design, would sit effortlessly in any environment and give the end user the complete freedom to change its shape and usage with a simple click and twist. BOB is a piece of furniture that will be as relevant in 15-20 years time as it is today."

This win comes off the back of BOB also being awarded the Design Guild Mark in May 2019 by The Furniture Makers’ Company - the City of London livery company and charity for the furnishing industry that drives excellence and raises the profile of British design and innovation.
