UK company that manufactures and sells classical design copies at a fraction of their street price!
The classical designs will be free from copyright protection sooner or later and in some countries in Europe, like the UK, they already are today. Therefore you can legally buy furniture from Designers Revolt and have it delivered to your home, anywhere in EU, thanks to the EU’s free movement of goods regulation. This is a good thing for people passionate about good design, since it creates a situation where consumers themselves can decide about price, quality and fidelity – no longer forced by a monopoly market.
Our mission – designers’ revolt!
We believe that the designers behind all the wonderful pieces of furniture you will find here on
Designers Revolt would turn in their graves at the exclusivity their designs have achieved due
to the artificially inflated prices charged by licensed manufacturers.
Why are prices so high?
Who would not want to own an Arne Jacobsen designed Egg Chair? Or better still a set of these classic icons. However, few could ever consider this when the price is comparable to the cost of a new car. The suggested price from Fritz Hansen for a leather Egg Chair is at least 9,000 Euros, meaning a group of four would set you back over 36,000 Euros!
So, why is the price so high? The reason is simply a lack of competition and this is not only the case with the iconic Egg chair, it’s the same with most classical designer furniture. In much of Europe furniture designs are classed as works of art, which means they have copyright protection for 75 years after the artist’s death.
Furniture producers holding copyrights for these designs therefore have a monopoly and can control prices, keeping them inflated and only within reach of the wealthy few. People who love designer furniture are forced to buy from producers protected by these far-reaching copyright laws and have to pay an inflated price, the ‘high street price’.
