Wood Awards shortlist announced19-Aug-2016
A shortlist of 12 projects has been selected from a record number of 182 British furniture and product projects in this year’s Wood Awards 2016 shortlist. Two bespoke designs, six production and four student designs have been selected by the judges led by Max Fraser, design curator and author. All of the shortlisted projects will be on display at Interiors stand L620. The winners will be revealed by host Grant Gibson, editor of Crafts magazine, at the 45th annual Wood Awards ceremony at Carpenters’ Hall on 22nd November.
Established in 1971, the Wood Awards is the UK’s premier competition for excellence in architecture and product design in the world’s only naturally sustainable material. The Awards aim to recognise, encourage and promote outstanding design, craftsmanship and installation using wood. Max Fraser comments, “It was encouraging to see an increase in the number of entries to the Awards this year. In particular, the quality of work entered into the production category improved, demonstrating that wood remains a leading material choice within the furniture business. All of the judges look forward to coming face-to-face with our shortlisted designs in the next round of judging in September.”
