Thomas Lloyd
Master of faculty of Royal Designers Industry

RDI Master

We are delighted to announce that Tom will be assuming the role of Master of the Faculty of Royal Designers for Industry and will be making his inaugural address ‘Making sense, making progress; Design after Covid’ at the RDI 2021 Awards dinner on Thursday 25th November.

The title Royal Designer for Industry was introduced by the Royal Society of Arts in 1936 to promote the important contribution of design in manufacturing in industry, to encourage and reward outstanding practitioners, and to raise the profile of the design profession. Now regarded as the highest accolade for designers in the UK, it is awarded annually to designers of all disciplines who have achieved sustained design excellence, work of aesthetic value, and significant benefit to society.

Tom and Luke were each awarded the title of RDI in 2008

Workplace Intelligence

Great to speak with Vitsoe on workspace intelligence and the transformation of a former Victorian workshop into our new studio space.

“The physicality of being in the same space with people is, I think, a concrete, immovable, reality. We just don’t quite know how much of it we’ll need.” Read more here.
