Morph Shortlisted for Six Awards
We are delighted to announce that our new concept modular furniture construction system, Morph®, has been shortlisted for six awards:
National Recycling Awards 2021
- Circular Economy Initiative – Plastics
- Recycled Product of the Year
- Innovation Award
Plastics Industry Awards 2021
- Best Industrial Product Design – International
- Best Recycled Plastic Product
- Best Business Initiative
Both awards will take place in December 2021 and be judged by leading experts across the Plastics and Recycling industries. We can’t wait to hear the results.
The office furniture industry generates a huge amount of waste -- approximately 91% of desks are discarded mostly to landfill (WRAP 2011) and an estimated 300 tonnes of office furniture goes to landfill every single day in the UK alone (WRAP 2012). This is not only costly for companies, but incredibly harmful to the environment.
Morph is an innovative 100% recycled and recyclable modular construction system which creates a truly sustainable circular economy and reduces the amount of plastic discarded in landfills.
Injection moulded using recycled ABS plastic, the four core components connect to create multiple products including individual and bench desk solutions (with integrated screens if required), office/building partitions, meeting bays, tiered seating, video conferencing units, tables and reception desks.

It is inherently designed to adapt to businesses’ ever-changing needs, with the modular format enabling 'new' products to be built from existing designs. Products can be taken apart and reformed into a new design to suit a new purpose or recycled and reconstructed as a new Morph Bricks product. Repurposing products in this way reduces waste, encourages long-term investment and inspires a mindful approach to work interiors.
Morph has already been installed in a number of locations including Winchester University Circular Economy store.
Morph Designer, Harvey Banner says:
Our idea evolved from concerns and experiences of a throw-away culture not only in furniture but also in office fitout and office moves. Practices which are widely accepted as the norm are having a devastating and long-term impact on the environment and we wanted to offer an alternative option. We believe Morph provides a solution which offers flexibility in its design, adaptability in its application and longevity in its use. And when the time comes, the components can be recycled into new Morph components or for other uses. A truly cost-effective circular economy model.
