Among the competition prizes were an annual ACID membership and internships with Barjis, Ercol, Fromental, Mark Hutchinson Furniture and Marks & Spencer.
“The New Design Britain competition is a great opportunity for all the finalists to present their work to the top industry professionals who visit interiors," said Boyce. "The show’s been great for us and it’s the best place to make new contacts with both fellow designers and people from big companies who are interested in our projects.”
The New Design Britain competition ran alongside interiors 2011. Call for entries opens in May 2011 for the 2012 competition.
