The Antalis Interior Design Award | The Winners
Editorial promotion in association with Antalis
Back in October we covered the call for entries in the first edition of the Antalis Interior Design Award.
Covering categories ranging from home interiors to hotels, restaurants, retail, offices and public buildings the awards celebrate completed projects utilising products from the Antalis Coala range.
Over 300 projects were submitted by interior designers, architects, printers and advertising agencies. Here are some of the winning entries.
Home | Tin Tiles by Koziel
In the 'Home' category the judges chose Christoph Koziel's photographic tromp l'oeuil wallpaper. Faithfully representing the antique patina of decorative tin tiles widely used at the beginning of the 20th century the wallpaper creates an interesting optical illusion. For his entry into the awards Koziel used the design to create a chic Parisian interior that would help spotlight the history of French decorative arts for his client, the French jeweller Christofle.
Hospitality | International Hotel Chain Bedrooms
Kromaprint create customised art and photographic works used by interior designers and architects for interior decoration. They were recently commissioned to print this marine life series to decorate the walls of a large hotel on the Mayan Riviera in Mexico. The beautiful illustrations and eye catching choice of motif add an interesting touch to the rooms and provide a sense of place.
Restaurant | Restauraca Wrocław - AC Hotel by Marriott
The winning entry in the 'Restaurant' category was this project by Jacek Żmuda for the AC Hotel Wroclaw. The hotel is located within a historic building dating back to 1875 with elements of the original interior having been restored. Backlit textiles from the Coala range alongside pictures printed on Coala canvas were used to create an elegant and inviting contemporary space.
Retail | Daniels Mountain View
Jörg Stein of Comexpo was tasked with producing a 13 metre wide mountain landscape for this window display for a boutique in Cologne. The judges felt that there was a good fit between the decor and the products but also noted the technically interesting solution.
Other winners included a shipping container disguised with a printed image to allow it to blend into the landscape on a ridge overlooking a picturesque wooded valley in and a project for a Danish museum which aims to find a more modern way of communicating the museum's stories by integrating them with the design of the building.
In addition to completed projects designers were also able to submit 3D projects on a white model. Within this category the judges singled out Diana Chivu's contemporary chalet style design for a hotel lobby and Charlotte Liénard's Violine Office, a workspace featuring geometric wall art custom made with Antalis products.
