“I am thrilled and honoured to have been chosen for this award by The Design Council and awarded by ACID.  Inspired by the curves of nature, the concept of the Citrus Chair is to change the way we think about seating, making it more sociable, versatile and comfortable.  For creativity to flourish intellectual property must be safeguarded.”

Holly launched Citradi at 100% Design in London last September. For small companies like her own she is thrilled that ACID is helping to secure designs.
