Quick Reference

(established 1927)

A pioneer of tubular steel furniture in Britain, Cox & Co.'s origins lay in the manufacture of automobile components but soon moved into tubular steel car seats and folding garden furniture. However, after exposure to examples of Thonet tubular steel furniture in 1930, the company manufactured a range of modern designs. In the following year the company won orders for 5,000 chairs from Bobby's department store in Bournemouth and 2,500 tables for Dreamland in Margate, and also produced designs by C. A. Richter for Bath Cabinet Makers. This was followed by a series of orders for furniture designed by Raymond McGrath and Serge Chermayeff for the BBC's Broadcasting House in London (1931–2), by Oliver Bernard for Lyon's Corner Houses (1933), and tip‐up seating for the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in 1935. The company moved into government contracts during the Second World War, returning to the production of furniture and other products in the post‐1945 era.
