Helping the UK’s first “Museum of Making” impress their visitors with office furniture and boardroom furniture

28th September 2021Case Study

Derby Museum celebrates Derby’s 300 years of making. 

Derby Museum is an independent charitable trust that houses the finest collection of work by the artist Joseph Wright of Derby.

Derby Museum contacted Crown Workspace as they were looking for a company that could supply furniture of a high standard and that sat well with their ethics.  Crown Workspace was chosen to furnish their offices, co-working spaces and meeting rooms which are available to hire in the UK’s first museum of making, where you can sit amongst 30,000 historical objects to help inspire your work!

After working closely with our contact, we supplied, delivered, and installed the following:

Meeting tables

David Rowland Howe chairs

Vetra Medapal Task Chair

Allermuir Mollie chair

Orangebox Calder Chairs

Walter Knoll XTable

Allermuir Curve A800 chairs

The furniture is now proudly on display in various rooms including the The Loom Room & River Room and The Prospect.

Customer Feedback

 “When looking to furnish spaces in the Museum of Making we wanted something that was affordable, stylish and different from what we had seen in other offices and galleries. After months of searching, we came across Crown Workspace and were delighted to see that they also sold reconditioned pieces. As a Museum of making, this sat well within our ethos and seemed the right thing to do both financially and environmentally. We were able to liaise direct with their team about the style and finish that we wanted and were able to purchase not just office furniture, but design classics. Delivery and assembly went incredibly smooth and the after sales service too was superb. We now have office spaces and boardrooms that people love to be in and comment as much about the furniture as the museum building itself”.
