Designer Kitchen & Bathroom has published the inaugural d-list – our selection of 20 industry designers who we feel you should know about.
The list comprises a wide range of designers, from some of the most innovative and inventive product designers to the most exciting and creative kitchen and bathroom project designers – everyone on the d-list is one to watch and all are names to follow over the coming years.
Some are up-and-comers who have only fairly recently started to make a name for themselves with their innovative and fresh new thinking, whilst others have been in and around the kitchen and bathroom sector a little longer, building up formidable track records for contributing creative excellence to the industry.
What they all have in common however is that their work inspires and encourages others to continue to raise the bar in kitchens and bathrooms, constantly suggesting new ways of utilising clever design to tackle problems old and new.
The d-list has been supported by appliance brand Baumatic. Owain Harrison, UK Head of Sales and Marketing, Hoover Candy Baumatic (Built-in), said: “With a passion for cutting-edge design, Baumatic is delighted to sponsor the first ever d-list, which celebrates the talented designers shaping the current and future trends in our industry.
“As a brand dedicated to bringing technologically advanced appliances to a fashionable audience, we understand the importance of great and inspirational design, and we are proud to be associated with this exciting compilation by Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Magazine.”
Intended as an annual publication, the d-list will evolve over time as new design talent emerges and different individuals come to our attention. As well as those on this year’s list, we know there are plenty of others also deserving of recognition so we welcome your suggestions of individuals who you feel should be considered for the 2016 edition of the d-list.
Please contact us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let us know who you think should be included next time.
