Kitchen and Bathroom Design 2017 Awards
Recently announced as the NSW Chairperson for the Kitchen and Bathroom Design Institute (KBDi), our Creative Director, Gavin Hepper, has been spending additional time in the studio over the past weeks judging the national KBDi Designer Awards. The KBDi is Australia’s premier specialist kitchen and bathroom designers’ association, with a strong commitment to the continual improvement and professional development of this increasingly specialised field.
‘The opportunity to judge the awards this year was a great honour’ commented Gavin, ‘to recognise the growth and talent within our industry and have it nationally recognised is a great achievement for a designer and is a genuine acknowledgement of our skills and professionalism’. With a record number of entries across all categories, judging the high calibre of awards against the comprehensive criteria of technical requirements, client design brief and ultimate delivery of design representing innovation, balance and harmony.
At the recent KBDi event Gavin was on hand to announce the NSW 2017 finalists with special guest, Hafele ambassador, Darren Palmer. Prior to the announcements Darren took us through the top trends on kitchen design for 2017, including some great innovation for Hafele – a world leader in furniture fittings and architectural hardware for kitchens – beautiful solutions for modern living.
