4. International Design & Architecture Awards – Finalist
Simply to be shortlisted to one of the best interiors industries awards, the ID&A awards, is an achievement in itself. To win (as we have done on four occasions) is a monumental accolade. This was a tricky one for us as there was no obvious entry for a garage or underground space, only more usual categories such as bedroom, kitchen, sitting room etc. However we and the organisers felt it would sit well showing off some of the technology and therefore we entered the Best Lighting Scheme category within the Product section. We were thrilled to be shortlisted.
With somewhere around 40,000 votes for the awards the gala evening at the Dorchester on Park Lane was set to be a dramatic climax with some 400 top interior related companies represented from all over the globe.
