(UK) – 200 entries for this year’s darc awards/decorative were received along with 6,000 votes from independent architects, interior designers, lighting designers and product designers.
Hosted by esteemed product designer Job Smeets and held at the iconic London nightclub Fabric on Thursday 31st May 2018, the darc awards/decorative are the only international awards that celebrate and focus on decorative lighting within interior design, covering all areas of hospitality, commercial projects and private residential projects, as well as the latest product designs from the past twelve months. And to make sure the right people win, we use a peer-to-peer voting system so you can be sure that the darc team’s ‘favourites’ are not guaranteed winners!
If you are a designer, this event is for you and changes the dynamic of traditional awards where you have to buy a ticket or wait to be invited by a manufacturer – something that is out of the grasp of many junior designers and small practices.
We also take a much more relaxed approach to the traditional awards ceremony – theres no dress code and no table plan. Instead we bring you a night of entertainment, creative light installations from our sponsors, some of the finest street food London has to offer…and lets not forget about that free bar!
If you’re a manufacturer, the best way to get involved in the awards is to become a sponsor. You can read more about the benefits of sponsoring the darc awards decorative here plus further information on how you can get involved in the next event.
