The finalists for the Society for British & International Design – SBID – International Design Awards 2019 have been revealed, with Mark Taylor Design, Diane Berry Kitchens and Eggersmann Design, pictured, among the shortlisted entries in the KBB category.
According to SBID, entries for 2019 came from 48 countries including the UK, Switzerland, Qatar, Poland, Barbados, Monaco, Japan, Indonesia, Brazil and Australia. The finalists were selected by a judging panel and will now be put to a public vote, which will account for 30% of the final results.
“The SBID International Design Awards continue to grow from strength to strength with more submissions received, more countries represented and this year we have an additional category,” said SBID founder and CEO Vanessa Brady.
“It is known across the design industry as the premier design award to win and for that, we are quite rightly very proud to present it, as much as our entrants are to win it. Last year saw one of the most globally represented editions to date with an astounding 225,000 unique voters during the voting period.”
SBID said this year’s awards will be “bigger and better than ever” as the organisation celebrates its 10th anniversary. The winners will be announced at a “captivating” ceremony at a new venue – Grosvenor House in London – on the 25th October.
Winners will receive a bespoke crystal trophy designed by Sans Souci Glass Deco, and all winners and finalists will be featured in the Global Interior Design 2019 book.
