Winners of 2017 SBID Awards Revealed

The SBID International Design Award 2017 Winners were revealed on Friday 27 October 2017 at a dazzling ceremony at the home of the awards, the prestigious Dorchester hotel in London’s Mayfair. With a 40% increase of entries and over 100,000 public votes, this year’s awards have been one of the most globally represented editions to date, and include industry talent from over 40 countries across the globe.

The competition this year was as impressive as ever, with some of the world’s best known hotel chains, retail, technology and automotive brands in the shortlist of finalists. The winners equally represent 4 continents worldwide with winning projects from the UAE, USA, Hong Kong, Egypt and more.

Winning an SBID International Design Award is truly a high achievement; all 14 categories are assessed by a technical panel, a public vote and a panel of leading industry experts, who look for outstanding examples of technical content and aesthetic creativity. Now in their seventh year, the SBID Awards are regarded as one of the highest accolades of interior design excellence; the annual event continues to reward and celebrate outstanding projects and products from the industry at large.

The Overall Winner Award, a category which holds the title as the ‘SBID choice’, was awarded to Singapore and London-based practice WOW Architects | Warner Wong Design for The Whale Bar at the St Regis Hotel in the Maldives.

This title is given to the project that receives the highest score after both the judges’ choices and the public votes have been considered. Inspired by the shape of the majestic whale shark and set overlooking the Indian Ocean, the Whale Bar has taken cues from marine iconography and the natural surroundings. The design team harnessed traditional Maldivian crafts such as pyrography and marine themes to create a welcoming, wondrous space that exudes luxury, nature-inspired design and local artistry.

Soft lighting, pale oak and a signature ceiling mural make this an unforgettable space that draws together the beauty of the natural environment and innovative hospitality design. The flowing structure opens out onto an open-air terrace, with the main aperture allowing guests to perfectly view the sunset, one of the most magical natural aspects of the location.

SBID President, Vanessa Brady OBE said: “We’re now in the seventh edition of the Awards and each year the support and volume of entries surprise and delight us. Now a firmly established event on the international design calendar, the SBID Awards is one of the most exciting celebrations of design excellence for the global industry.”

The design-savvy public were invited to vote for their favourite projects which accounted for 30% of the final results.

Each year, the SBID International Design Awards selects an individual who has against all odds successfully championed a specific sector of the creative industries. This year, British designer Sebastian Conran was awarded with the SBID Fellow of the Year 2017 title. The award-winning designer has created iconic pieces for leading brands, including Vitra, John Lewis, Yotel and Nigella and is a life-long champion of excellence in design.

All winners received a beautiful SBID International Award 2017 trophy, specially made by Czech glass specialists; Sans Souci Glass Deco.
