The Design Guild Mark (DGM) was introduced by The Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers to reward the work of the finest furniture designers working in Britain. Judged annually by a panel of members from across the furniture industry, DGMs are awarded for excellence in design, use of materials, manufacture and function.
To date Samuel Chan has been awarded 12 DGMs, one of the highest tallies for any one furniture designer. He was made a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers in 2015.
