Stephen Clasper Interiors has been selected as a Finalist in the 2014 Society of British & International Design (SBID) Awards.
The luxury kitchen the team created for a home in St George’s Hill, Surrey, has been shortlisted in the Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom category.
As the Awards web site describes, the project delivered “a striking, glamorous space for cooking, eating, relaxing and entertaining” to meet the client’s “challenging but clear brief: to deliver a highly distinctive, luxury kitchen – the likes of which he’d never seen before.”
The Stephen Clasper kitchen is up against projects from New Zealand and Poland as well as other projects from around the UK.
The SBID Awards is a prestigious recognition scheme for international design excellence. This year, it received a 15% increase in entries from over 30 countries.
SBID President, Vanessa Brady OBE, said: “Quality projects from around the world continue to represent our ethos – that design is a discipline which requires training, trading standards, a shared financial conduct and unity. We’re dedicated to acknowledging excellence and our awards serve as the finest way to celebrate this commitment”.
The judges of this year’s awards include: high-end interior designer Katharine Pooley; John Mathers, CEO of The Design Council; Mathew Dalby, Design Director at Philippe Starck-founded designers yoo; Kevin Mau, Creative Director at The Boeing Company; Ben McOwen Wilson, Director of YouTube; and Christopher Jenner, Creative Director at Eurostar.
