Design Protection Statement
Intellectual Property Notice
Protecting our designs from copying is key to sustaining our British workshops and protecting the jobs of our craftspeople.
From discussions with our clients we know that they recognise the value of our exhaustive design and prototyping process, as well as design integrity and craftsmanship, as a key reason for their decision to invest in a Soane piece.
The design, features and characteristics of every single Soane piece, be it furniture, lighting or a textile or wallpaper, have been meticulously thought through by our design teams.
Our brand and our designs are protected by a comprehensive portfolio of intellectual property rights, which includes trade marks, registered and unregistered design rights and copyright.
Reflecting the harm caused to the craftspeople we work with and our brand, we cannot accept the unlawful copying of our designs and infringement of our intellectual property. We proactively monitor for potential infringements and are prepared to take action against those who infringe our rights.
