Welcome to the Design Oscars!
I am so excited… it is my favourite time of year: I have just received an email from the team at Andrew Martin. The latest edition of their Interior Design Review has just been published and I simply can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.
The Interior Design Review has always been my favourite design book. It is published annually and each year as the release date draws near, I am in a state of eager anticipation. The book has been described as “the Bible of the design world” and it really is the biggest, thickest, heaviest book I own.
And I love it!
Within its hardback cover are over a 1000 beautiful colour photographs – a compendium of the world’s greatest designers and their best work to date. The book features the work of almost a hundred designers from every corner of the globe. And that is what makes the book so compelling – it’s sheer variety.
The pages contain the very best examples of classic, eccentric, decadent, minimalist or avante-garde. It is very simply a compilation of the best of every design genre highlighting the current trends in international interior design… What other inspiration could a design-lover need?
Competition amongst designers to have our work included in these pages is fierce. The Times has described it as “the Oscars of the interior design world”.
So we are sooo excited to see our work included amongst the work of our favourite book! It is the third consecutive year that Design Intervention has been featured in the Interior Design Review and we are simply thrilled to have made the cut again.
They gave us six whole pages! Two more than last year.
Each year, the judging panel selects just one designer from the 100 included and declares them the “designer of the year”. This year it was Hong Kong’s Stephen Leung. The works of this great designer has been featured in 12 editions of the book…. so I guess we have quite some way to go….
But for now, we are so proud, delighted and honoured to see our work appear alongside the industry’s greatest talents.
