SieMatic recently partnered with final year interior design students at the University of Central Lancashire to “gain insight into future trends from fresh young talent coming into the industry”, as well as presenting an award to the student with the “most innovative” kitchen design.

The company hosted the group of third-year students at its flagship studio, where its UK team gave the students a competition brief of ‘What will the kitchen look like in 50 years’ time?’. The designs had to cover sustainability, wellness, inclusion, technology and new materials.

Student Amina Gurjee’s ‘mindful kitchen’ won the competition, receiving a certificate of achievement and a cheque from SieMatic UK managing director Bernard Otulakowski. She will also be joining SieMatic’s UK management team on a trip to the group’s Löhne, Germany headquarters.

“As SieMatic has always been at the forefront of design innovation, we encourage forward-thinking fresh talent to come in to the industry, and saw this as an opportunity to assist young creatives to get on to the career ladder,” said Otulakowski.

“I was astounded by the quality of the work produced, the in-depth research which justified each concept was incredibly interesting. As the live brief was such a success, the brand will be rolling out the same format to universities throughout the country.”
