From the editor…
We end the year with one of our most popular issues – the awards special.
Over the following pages we reveal all the winners from 2017 Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Awards which this year took place at The Bloomsbury Big Top in Central London. From the top-end ultimate luxury projects to the designs with slightly more restricted budgets, categories reward and recognise creative excellence right across the kitchen and bathroom design sector. Winners also included the best of British Design and Manufacturing, Best Use of Materials, New Designer of the Year and our International category. We also reveal the winner of the Design Classic award, presented to Bulthaup for its game-changing b3 kitchen.
The awards also marked the passing of an industry legend with this year’s event dedicated to the memory of kitchen and furniture designer Mark Wilkinson OBE.
As well as all the content on the following pages, you can find out lots more about the awards at kb-eye.com/awards, plus we’ll be revisiting some of the finalists’ projects for a closer look over the coming months.
In the meantime, very many congratulations to all of this year’s finalists and winners, and do look out for all the winners of our Product Innovation Award categories in next month’s Designer.Designer | kb-eye.com/designer
