World Interiors News

London, United Kingdom, 2017-03-07 -

The recent World Interiors News Awards 2016 gala evening was truly a night to remember, in the very best of ways. The great and the good of the interiors world gathered together from around the globe for a glittering celebration of some of the industry’s most outstanding projects and products – all against the impressive backdrop of London’s iconic new Design Museum.

 

Being a WIN Awards winner, or even making it to the shortlist, is a remarkable achievement. It’s something all the designers featured in this celebratory compilation should be truly proud of; because each distinguished and discerning judge on the World Interiors News panel is appointed under the strict criteria of reputation, expertise, and their passionately held views on what constitutes excellence in design.

 

Once again, World Interiors News congratulates all its deserving winners.

Fangsuo Bookstore in Chengdu by Chu Chih Kang Space Design

Chu Chih Kang’s initial proposal was centered around “The Secret Scripture Library”.

Importance of Walking Store by Praxis d’Architecture

An unexpected situation with the lease required the design for the space to be as economical as possible and fast to build. Furthermore, the shoe shelves were intended to be self-supporting, movable and ready for re-assembling. Effectively an independent piece of furniture, the installation could be moved easily and with minimal wastage.

Puro Hotel by OHLAB

Puro is an iconic 22 room boutique hotel located in the heart of La Lonja, in the historical centre of Palma.
Adapting itself to the different existing buildings, the hotel has an irregular configuration. The refurbishment project by OHLAB takes advantage of that complexity as a potential tool to generate unexpected and unique spaces where each room is different from the next. The selection of natural and local materials emphasizing the Mediterranean essence has been very important.

In response to this we emphasized the rhythm and height created by fins on the façade by fitting each fin with custom LED fixtures.

JUDGES’ COMMENTS
‘It’s not just another media façade; the control system that allows weather to  determine the intensity and colour of the lights appealed to all the jury.’

Stasis by Bert Frank

Angular lines meet curved contours in the bold form of the Stasis Table Lamp, to produce a beautifully balanced and timeless piece. Drawing influences from the industrial era the Stasis Table Lamp along with the rest of its family - the Floor Lamp and striking Wall Light, will inject a sophisticated feel to any interior space.

CAELA by Zumtobel Lighting

In close cooperation with GRAFT Architects, Zumtobel has developed a decorative task luminaire that impressively combines elegance and lightness. Whilst the extremely flat and refined appearance of CAELA catches the eye, it is the modularity and versatility of the luminaire that really impresses.

JUDGES’ COMMENT
‘It’s a product that combines technical excellence with an innovative use of optics and a fresh choice of materials. It’s highly adaptable in different environments and it has the potential to be a design classic in its simplicity.’

Joist Table by Daniel Schofield

The construction of Joist Table reflects the way timber floor joists fit into structural steelwork – the Ash legs fit into the beam and two bolts on the underside of the legs pull into each other through the beam, holding the structure together and giving it its strength. The glass then rests on top located on silicone pads to stop any movement.

This allows for efficient shipping, easy assembly, great strength and a conservative use of materials whilst maintaining a clean and understandable construction narrative.
