Get the recognition you deserve! Enter the 24th annual Best of Canada!
The deadline to submit your Project and Product to the Canadian Interiors Best of Canada Awards competition is quickly approaching: submissions are due on Thursday, September 9th.
The Best of Canada is this country’s only design competition focusing on interior design projects and products without regard to size, budget or location. Submissions are welcome from interior designers, architects, landscape architects, decorators, crafts persons and design students.
Last year was a truly great year for Canadian interior design. Need proof? Take a look at some of the winners from 2020’s Best of Canada.
For example, this coalition of three design firms based in the province of Québec that included Coarchitecture, Atelier In Situ and Jacques Plante architecte, that joined forces to create a truly remarkable piece of work in Québec City: Le Diamant Theatre, picking up Project of The Year designation and gracing the cover of the November-December 2020 issue. Jurors were impressed by the seamless incorporation of a cutting-edge theatre with an intimate gathering space that respectfully reveals heritage aspects of the site along with sophisticated contemporary design gestures.
Jurors were also baffled by the Twist Chair, designed by Vancouver-based Patkau Architects for Nienkämper, knowing that when structures look simple, they are often decidedly not. The “twisting” of two layers of Birch plywood to form a complex curve earned the accolade of Judges’ Pick.
