The SBID International Design Awards were launched last year to much fanfare at September’s Maison & Objet in Paris. This year they’re back, and with more categories. You can see the complete list of residential finalists here, but we wanted to highlight the ones that stand out for us. The winners will be announced at Milan’s Macef International Home Show in September.
The Design Practice at UBER, run by brothers Simon and Jim Evans, has four projects shortlisted. The brothers have only been in business for a couple of years, but are no strangers to the ceremony, having scooped an award in the Residential category last year.
‘As a relative newcomers, we are thoroughly delighted to be shortlisted in several categories at this year’s SBID residential awards,’ says Jim. ‘It pays homage to our hard-working and exceptionally talented young team to be credited among such an elite field in interior design.’
The first project of theirs to be nominated is Walmsley Fold, which the brothers describe as ‘a modern and luxurious twist on farmhouse living for a young, fun-loving family, including some stunning talking-point features.’
