Bodleian Chair competition

In September 2012 the University of Oxford's historic Bodleian Libraries launched a competition to design a new reading room chair for the institution's Weston Library. 

The library is currently undergoing a complete refurbishment by Wilkinson Eyre Architects (due for completion late 2014), and this competition continues the Bodleian Libraries' history of commissioning bespoke furniture. We are excited to announce that Modus, in partnership with Michael Sodeau, is one of six British-based designers and manufacturers shortlisted for this prestigious project. The winner of the competition will be announced this September.
