Event Details

Orangebox is a design led business that manufactures high end products to the office furniture sector for the global market place. Quadrupling its annual turnover in turbulent economic conditions over the past decade is something the whole workforce feels very proud of. Its success, although complex to attribute to any one factor has been in part due to the company’s commitment to designing products that minimise their environmental impacts from conception through to end of life ownership – the company recently won an award for their commitment to sustainable manufacturing, which one of the judges described as “truly inspirational”.

A proactive approach to full life cycle thinking has enabled the business to engage with a broad and international spectrum of new clients, clients that are responding to the environmental challenges we all face. Luke’s talk will provide an insight in to the role design plays within a welsh SME that’s focused on doing ‘good’ business.

Speaker Biog

Gaining an industrial placement with Orangebox for the 3rd year of the degree course he was subsequently sponsored by the company for his 4th year final major project. Luke is now a senior designer within the research and development team at Orangebox and is responsible for leading the development and application of Environmental Product Design topics throughout the business.
