VALLEY FORGE, Pa.—Custom seating manufacturer BK Barrit recently announced that it has been awarded the prestigious ADEX Platinum Award for Design Excellence in three categories.
“We are honored to be awarded the Platinum ADEX Award for our three custom chair lines,” says Bryson Kershner, president of BK Barrit. “This award pays tribute to our 20-year focus on custom seating solutions for the corporate, hospitality and retail channels.”
BK Barrit is a manufacturer and wholesaler of hospitality, assisted living seating and restaurant furniture—chairs, tables, bar stools and more—as well as office seating and lounge furniture.
“BK Barrit products were gleaned from thousands of entries and earned the coveted ADEX Award based on a force-ranking of form, function and fitness for a particular purpose,” says John Moses, publisher of Design Journal, the awarding sponsor of the ADEX Awards. “The contest was the most competitive to date, with each company entering an average of 4.2 products into the competition. BK Barrit’s Custom Lounge Club, Pollock Elis 1 and Theatre Home Style Chair all received our highest Platinum Award.”
