Congratulations to Newmarket business Crimson Education on Nuffield Street, for taking out the best Workplace up to 1000m2 at the 2018 Interior Awards. These awards were held on Thursday 21st June at St Matthew-in-the-City in Auckland.
This year’s awards received a large volume of entries, making the jury’s job particularly difficult. The awards were presented across nine categories: Retail, Hospitality, Workplace (up to 1,000m2), Workplace (over 1,000m2), Civic, Installation, Craftmanship, Emerging Design Professional and Student.
Jury convenor and editor of Interior magazine Federico Monsalve said, “There were some big recurring themes this year – wabi-sabi, remembrance and quietude – but perhaps most noticeable among them was Maoridom….”
The Award for the Workplace up to 1,000m2 went to OPL for its design of the Crimson Education Office in Newmarket. The Jury was impressed with several of the designer’s choices including the perimeter-lining, ribbon-like piece that adds a sculptural element, the unique meeting pods and the use of clever, functional pieces.
They noted, “This office uses a delicate balance of hard and warm materials, muted and strong colours, simplicity and movement to represent an equally vibrant millennial and Gen Z workforce.”
