Editor Martin Allen-Smith welcomes in the new year with this month’s issue of Designer

From the editor…

The start of a new year is always our cue to look ahead to the trends on the horizon for the months ahead, so in this issue, we cast a curious eye over the kitchen furniture products 
and styles most likely to be shaping future projects.

2018 promises to be an exciting time for K&B designers, with
 a number of key opportunities to see the latest new launches
 at major trade shows including KBB 2018 in Birmingham and Eurocucina in Milan. Before that of course, the focus is on surfaces when the Surface Design Show opens its doors at London’s Business Design Centre next month. We preview some of the products and ideas to look out for if you’re heading to the show.

Also in this issue, we continue our look at some of the stand-out projects from the Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Awards 2017, with a couple of projects that emerged from the hundreds of entries 
to be selected as finalists. There is also a full list of winners from the Product Innovation Awards, with well-deserved gold awards presented to some of the industry’s most creative manufacturers.

In the meantime, enjoy the issue, and have a very happy and prosperous New Year.
