Weekly Round Up 11th December

Welcome back to our weekly blog! This Friday we have been captured by the beauty of a dying craft; as well as being over the moon that we are incorporating all "Top 5 Office Trends" into our seating and furniture designs... read on to be in the know.



















A dying craft...

Traditional craftmanship is thought to be a dying trade, "skills such as weaving, forging and soldering are in danger of being lost" according to the Heritage Crafts Association. This is partly down to the increase in technology and the new skills that this is opening up for young people. However it is sad to see that less and less people are interesting in learning the skills of so many centuries-old trades.




The co-ordinator of the Heritage Crafts Association has said that we not only have "an incredible range of craft skills in the UK and some of the best craftspeople in the world" but also that "these skills will only survive if they live in each generation". Therefore it's good to see a variety of competitions and exhibitions happening arcoss the country to showcase individuals work, in the hope to encourage more young people to learn these crafts.

If you're interested then why not have a look at this article or at the Heritage Craft Association's website.

It's also great to see young talent going viral across the internet. We found this article and fantastic video all about the youngest master penman in the world, Jake Weidmann. We hope you enjoy and feel inspired by his beautiful artworks.

Want to see more age old skills? Want to see seating designed and manufactured using not only new technology but also traditional craftsmanship? Then why not check out our website and have a look at some of our products.




Top 5 Office Trends
We really loved this article about the top five office trends from the 21st Century and thought that our readers would like to have a look too. It's incredibly exciting to see that we take all five into consideration for all of our products. Read on to see how we include these trends in our products.

Open Workspaces: our Elements range creates great spaces for break out to collaborate as well as to find some privacy to recharge. Keep your eyes peeled for our new media unit that's being launched in 2016 too.

Space Efficiency: with not only Elements but Chicago Modular and Jigsaw it's really easy to find something that will fit into any office space. Not only will it fit just right but it will enhance the way that your employees use the office for collaborative, break out spaces.




Sustainability: Not only is all of our wood FSC certified but we also work to create products that can be easily dissassembled and recycled. At Nomique we are constantly working to create more environmentally friendly products. Please have a look at our website to find out more.


Social responsibility: All of our products use a variety of components which have been produced in Europe and then shipped to us. We care not ony about our customers but also about our suppliers and where our products come from. We like to make sure that everything is from a responsible source and that our carbon footprint is as low as possible.

Integrated technology: There are so many options for putting technology into our products and we are in the process of creating some stunning images to show you just how great your next order from us could be. Keep your eyes and ears on red alert as coming into the new year we will be releasing many, many more products and options to suit you!

Weekly Round Up 4th December

Christmas is here at Nomique! There are Christmas trees up and mince pies being passed around the office, including very large spoonfuls of brandy cream...





We will still be here to answer all your questions and get those chairs to you until 5pm on Wednesday 23rd December 2015 and we will then be back on Monday 4th January 2016.

From all of us at Nomique Happy Christmas and we hope you all have a Merry New Year!



Sneak Previews...
We've been working really hard at Nomique to make sure that there are loads of brand NEW products avaliable for you in the New Year and we're really excited to show you some sneak previews today!

First we'd like to introduce you to TeamUp. A NEW comprehensive range of seating that is suitable for a diverse, flexible and progressive work environment. It has been designed by Jason Lansdale whose name you may recognise from his previous designs of our Lux range.
This multi purpose seating range will help those that are moving away from the traditional desk still find somewhere comfortable and practical for working as well as collaborating and relaxing.
We're keeping the full design a secret for now but we hope we've got you ready and waiting for the launch of TeamUp in 2016.


Not only is there the TeamUp range being launched next year but we are also releasing a NEW range of Moka chairs known as Moka Felt that go fantastically with the NEW Moka Tables.













If you weren't in love with the Moka Felts before you saw this photo, well you will be now. Doesn't it just look fantastic! At Nomique we really can't get enough of the orange legs. Keep your eyes peeled for these becoming avaliable very very very soon.


Not only are we really excited about the full sized Moka Felts but we also really love the 3D printed versions that fit in the palm of your hand too!

If you'd like to know more about any of our new products please don't hesitate to call us on

Remember our team intros? Perhaps you even remember our Regional Sales Manager Martin, but we bet you didn't remember that his random fact about himself was that he's eaten a deep fried tarantula! Well we haven't been allowed to forget about it, now that he's shown us the video!

Have a look for yourself but we suggest that you make sure you're not on your lunch break or half way through a sandwich cause it certainly made many of the Nomique office squeal and hide under the desks!

If you're done with watching and need something to ease your mind we suggest you have a look at our social media pages. You can let us know what you think of the video there too!
