Alexander Rose Staff granted Royal Society Nomination

We are delighted to announce that Borge Leth, Managing Director and Alan Morley, Head of Design, at Alexander Rose have been elected Fellows of the Royal Society of Arts.? Alexander Rose is one of the UK?s leading outdoor furniture manufacturers.

The RSA is the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. Their mission – ?21st century enlightenment? – pays tribute to the 18th century founders of the organisation and to the pioneering spirit that inspired them to build a better society for all through innovation and enlightened ideas.

This prestigious title has been conferred on Borge and Alan for their contribution to design education and manufacture. The company?s UK Student Design Competition, now in its second year, was seen by the RSA as promoting sustainable and innovative forms of design and manufacture and fostering the next generation of socially responsible designers ? two key aims that lie at the heart of the Society?s mission.

Borge and Alan have said:

?Working closely with Universities across the UK, our aim is to encourage young designers to engage with industry-based projects. This competition will provide students with substantial real work experience, the opportunity to win substantial prize money and a chance to develop a long term professional design career in a major UK industry worth of ?960 million

We are proud to be associated with the RSA?.
