#DesignTogether - 24 July
It's hard to believe that we've reached 19 weeks of the #DesignTogether newsletter. Launched as a way to keep connected with the design community during lockdown, we've been overwhelmed and grateful for the support and submissions received in that time. We've shared more than 76 free articles and over 40 community based submissions!
Next week will mark the last of our weekly newsletter as we move to a monthly #DesignTogether newsletter in August! Please do continue to share your content and stories with us for a chance to be featured going forward as we look forward to receiving and reading them each week.

The Monkey Puzzle Tree
We collaborate with artists to create beauty for interiors like you've
never seen before.
Our strong social conscience means that we work to support local communities and minimise the environmental impact of our products. We pay our artists generous royalties to help them continue with their creative work and make all of our designs to the highest standards using English manufacturers within 150 miles of our Leeds studio.
PORTS collection by Bene
For decades, office layouts and workplace furniture have been designed to communicate status, with power dynamics and hierarchies embedded everywhere. The corner office with its oversized desk; the formality of the boardroom; the visitor in their static chair vs the manager in their swivelling high-back – features such as these, now so ubiquitous we barely notice them – can often silence the voices that the company would benefit from hearing.
