BCFA Award 2004However, with its modern, even futuristic design and international appeal, the HighWay office swivel chair also created a furore, resulting in it earning two significant prizes from England (under the product name Speed Up on the English market). First of all, it received the BCFA Award 2004, which is conferred by the British Contract Furniture Association, and a short time after this it picked up the BED Excellence Award 2004 in the category “Task Seating“ from the Business Equipment Digest.
