Congratulations to Korean-born Jackie and Lloyd Choi of Jackie Choi London for winning one of the Mayor of Hackney’s annual Business Awards 2006. The awards are designed to “celebrate entrepreneurs with business acumen and innovative ideas that generate jobs throughout the borough”. The awards were presented on 14 November, and the Choi sisters won in the best new product / product design category.
Viewers of Graham Norton’s show The Bigger Picture will be familiar with one of Jackie Choi’s products: the Eye chair.
The chair was a university project and was spotted by a furniture manufacturer at the Chois’ graduate show in 2003. Since then they have expanded their product range. You should be able to find their “So” coat stand (below) at Liberty’s.
