Oikos Golden Lock
Awards

Oikos Golden Lock Award

In December 2017 we were delighted and humbled to win the Oikos Golden Lock Award which is Oikos’ ‘best client of the year award’ and was awarded for our commitment, attitude and results achieved.

It is the first time a customer from outside of Italy has won the award and James Darnell travelled to Oikos doors in Italy to collect it.

Some of our orders that have contributed to us achieving the award are our Sevendials project which will feature in the new Oikos No Limits book and our black marble door at Honeywood.

Events

Oikos – The Culture, A Company

We along with some of our key clients were invited by Oikos to take part in their event in Venice. The title of the event was The Culture. A Company. Possible Landscapes which focused on culture and how architecture is affected by it.

The event was held in the breath taking Sculoa Grande Di San Rocco. There were talks by Fabrizio Panozzo from the University of Venice and world renowned architect Stefano Boeri who created the Vertical Forest Project.

On the second day we visited the fantastic Oikos doors showroom to see the ful range of products including the new Nova glazed door available in sizes up to 6.3m high.
