These ‘Nine Separate Small Tables’ won 22-year-old Andrew Cathery joint first prize last week in the first Elle Decoration Design Competition, sponsored by Heal’s and The Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers. Judges, including Robin Day, Tom Dixon, Romeo Gigli and Sir Terence Conran, chose the work of the Leeds Metropolitan University furniture design student alongside that of furniture designer Charley Quinn. The brief was to design a table for the end of the century. Cathery’s design, say the judges, is ‘an honest re- appraisal of the way people eat, live, work and watch TV in the home’. Edinburgh’s Clementine Hope was runner-up. The competition is to become an annual event.
