At Ocee Design, we believe that the furniture we design and the spaces we fill should enrich and inspire the lives of the organisations and individuals that use them. Everybody should be able to work, learn, meet or be entertained in the most beautiful, comfortable, creative and productive spaces. This belief is what makes us tick; it reflects our approach to design and manufacturing, the people we hire and how we go about our work. We’ve created a range of furniture solutions and products that are infinitely adaptable and flexible, highly curated to suit a variety of needs, spaces, ambitions and budgets. We cater for a single office to a global HQ, public spaces to co-working spaces, from universities to conference halls, from canteens to libraries, from the back office to the front of house. By focusing on three vital design principles of People. Place. Purpose, our furniture combines unrivalled functionality, ingenious design and the healthy dose of wonder, that shapes good environments into great experiences.
A little history…
Ocee Design is proud to be part of the Ocee International Group of acclaimed international furniture brands, along with Four Design and Race Furniture. We are a UK manufacturer of commercial furniture working with office furniture resellers, design and build consultants, architects and specifiers. We operate from a modern production facility in Northamptonshire and showrooms in Northampton and London.
The company was founded in 1990 to provide unique commercial seating solutions and real business benefits to our customers. Our strategic development has taken us from a producer of operator and task seating to an established British furniture manufacturer of superior designed, high quality products.
In July 2016, Ocee Design announced the purchase of Danish furniture manufacturer Four Design. Ocee Design had more than tripled its turnover in six years, to become a significant player in the UK commercial furniture market. The creation of Ocee International Ltd signified a desire to expand Ocee’s presence beyond the UK market. By combining acclaimed British and Danish design, Ocee has created a very strong product portfolio with an excellent customer service platform. The clean Scandinavian designs perfectly complement Ocee’s own highly acclaimed soft seating collections.
in December 2017, Ocee International announced the acquisition of British based Race Furniture. Race, has been at the forefront of the design and manufacture of seating for public spaces for over 70 years. Founded by Ernest Race to manufacture his own designs, the company still produces some of the most classic furniture of the post-war era, including the BA3 and the Antelope chairs. Race is well known for its range of expertly crafted auditorium products and Eglin concourse furniture. The rich heritage of Ernest Race’s designs adds to the Group’s own contemporary British and Danish furniture portfolio.
In December 2017, Ocee International was listed in the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 fastest growing privately owned UK companies.
