The Winners of the FX Interior Design Awards 2017 have been announced.
Last night, our FX Awards celebrated world-class design excellence with a terrific showbiz-style party.
Thanks to your continuous support, we now have a truly international status with global submissions comprising more than half of our entries. So if you won last night, you really are the best in the world.
With so many VIP architects and designers in attendance, I was humbled that you travelled across the world to join us for this fabulous event. Our industry is known for its colourful characters and it’s at the FX Awards that you get to meet them!
On a sobering note, the strength and quality of our awards, and ultimately the success of these awards, is down to the judging panel, whose members I invite for their independence, authority, expertise and commitment. They care as much as I do about the results.
As you know, I don’t judge myself but I do invite new judges each year to reflect your interests. This year I recruited 24 judges, our largest panel ever, to argue your corner. Each judge was invited for their integrity, opinions and experience.
In some of the most hotly contested categories, we had as many as 10 judges on a category. They are passionate about this industry and each of your entries, and I am indebted to them for assuring the integrity and high standing of these awards.
And with our four prestigious awards – as voted by FX readers worldwide – I am delighted that you have voted Ken Shuttleworth as recipient of the Outstanding Lifetime Contribution to Design award.
He has proved himself to be a brillliant architect on a variety of different levels / projects and circumstances – and one that FX’s readers are so proud of.
