Recent OP, Dan Hatfield, from the Class of 2022, has had his A-level Design and Technology in Product Design project shortlisted for the Furniture Makers’ Company’s School Design Prize.

This prestigious prize is open to gifted young design and technology pupils from across the UK. Now in its seventh year, the prize rewards talented GCSE and A-level students and offers them the opportunity to showcase their work to the industry.

Dan will present his project, the Koko-Accent chair, at the Young Furniture Makers’ exhibition that is being held in London on Wednesday 12 October. The winner of the award will be announced that evening.

Daniel’s design incorporates all the key features of Scandinavian design, minimalism, clean lines and a combination of function and beauty. Behind the aesthetic is a well-crafted piece of furniture incorporating many intricate joinery processes.

A delighted Dan said: “I am so excited that I have been selected, it’s a dream come true, hours of work went into producing the chair and it is a privilege to have been shortlisted.”

Head of Design and Technology, Paul Scopes, commented, “It was clear that this project was a real passion for Daniel, he invested a great deal of time and effort into designing, crafting and producing a visually stunning product and should feel proud of what he has designed and produced. To be shortlisted from all the schools in Britain is an outstanding achievement.”

Dan achieved an A* in his A-level Design and Technology and this September will move to Loughborough University to study Graphic Design.

Princethorpe congratulates Dan, it is a fantastic achievement to have been shortlisted, we wish him the very best of luck for the final round.
