The 2014 New Design Britain Awards are showcasing a whole new crop of British talent. It's great to see what the young, up and coming designers are doing.

The awards are made in four categories: Furniture, Furnishing Accessories, Fabrics and Surfaces. The nominees' projects will be exhibited at a trade show in the UK.

This chair, in the Furniture category is by Alexander Mueller. Waxed cord is woven around an ash timber frame to create this woven easy chair with clean geometric lines.
