2018 SBID winners revealed

October 29, 2018

(UK) – Winners of the SBID International Design Awards 2018 revealed at dazzling ceremony in The Dorchester hotel in London’s Mayfair.

With more entries than ever before and 225,000 unique public votes; this year’s awards have been one of the most globally represented editions to date, with industry talent from over 42 countries across the globe.

With all fourteen categories assessed by a technical panel, a public vote and a panel of leading industry experts, who look for outstanding examples of technical content and aesthetic creativity, winning projects this year came from the UK, South Africa, China, New Zealand, Canada, China, Dubai and more.

The Overall Winner Award, a category which holds the title as the ‘SBID choice’, was
awarded to Dubai-based practice 4SPACE Design for VR Park Dubai Mall. This title is given to the project that receives the highest score after both the judges’ choices and the public votes have been considered. The VR Park was designed to allow visitors to experience an extreme level of virtual reality.

The client, Emaar Entertainment, wanted to build a new attraction that had never been implemented in Dubai before. The core concept was to experience the futuristic ambience and elements along with a wonderful journey through the virtual reality world. All winners for each category received a bespoke crystal trophy designed by Sans Souci
glass deco.

SBID Founder and CEO, Dr Vanessa Brady OBE said: “Each year the support and volume
of entries surprise and delight us. Now a firmly established event on the international
design calendar, the SBID Awards is one of the most exciting celebrations of design
excellence for the global industry.”
