A North-East workplace design team have beaten off 35,000 to win best selfie competition!

Newcastle workplace design team Ben Johnson Interiors always visit the prestigious Clerkenwell Design Week in London at the end of May to explore the latest office interiors trends, see new products and meet suppliers. This year there were over 250 exhibiting brands and over 35,000 people attended.

So, imagine the team’s surprise a week later when they saw a Twitter post to say their team selfie picture – taken while they were all attempting to sit on the latest Sedus “Se-Joy” office chair – had won them the very chair they’d been fighting over!

Director Emma Dodsley, said: “We knew there was a competition for best selfie and thought we’d enter while we were viewing the products, but we were just having fun and didn’t think for a minute we would win against loads of others entering.” “But now we’re eagerly awaiting our prize. Who gets to sit on it is another matter!” If you’d like to know more about Ben Johnson Interiors, please visit
