The regional winners of Sub Zero & Wolf’s 2010-12 Kitchen Design Contest have been announced, with two designers from the UK & Europe section jetting off to the final in Wisconsin, USA later this year.
In front of a packed audience of finalists and other guests at the Sub Zero & Wolf Subterranean Studio in London’s Brompton Road, the results were revealed by food writer Tom Parker-Bowles.
Divided into two sections – contemporary and traditional – Davy Swanenberg won the contemporary category for his striking modern professional kitchen design. Meanwhile, former Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Award winner Jane Stewart won the traditional section for a bright and spacious reconfiguration.
The winners now go through to the final, with the chance to win a top prize of $40,000. As well as the main prizes, there is also a designers’ choice and a peoples’ choice award. The contest is open to anyone working with Sub Zero & Wolf products, including kitchen retailers, kitchen designers, architects, interior designers and builders or developers.
The other finalists to receive runners-up certificates in the regional section were: Marzia Caldirola of Boffi London; Darren Jenner of Darren Jenner London; Paolo Marazzi of Marazzi Design; and Jim Brookman of the Richmond Square Group.
The Kitchen Design Contest takes place every two years and this time, marks its 10th edition. The contest was developed by Sub-Zero & Wolf as a way of recognising kitchen design professionals and the critical role they play in making beautiful kitchens happen.
