"UCLan’s Innovation team were fantastic! They helped us through market research, both by style and materiality to match our design ethos. We also received great advice on how to progress the design ideas, which led to the R&D team putting together a design for a unique chair, that we worked collaboratively on, to create ‘Empire’"
