TRENDS INTERNATIONAL DESIGN AWARDS 2016 RECOGNISING EXCELLENCE IN DESIGN NEW ZEALAND DESIGNER BATHROOM AUSTRALIAN DESIGNER BATHROOM I AWARD WINNERS The Trends International Design Awards – TIDAs – are a search NEW ZEALAND DESIGNER BATHROOM for the best kitchens, bathrooms and homes across a number DU BOIS DESIGN of the countries where Trends has a presence. The TIDAs start with awards programmes within countries, and AUSTRALIAN DESIGNER BATHROOM ARC SEVEN.1 we’re pleased to announce two of the bathroom winners here. Du Bois Design is the category winner for: HIGHLY COMMENDED TIDA New Zealand Designer Bathroom DESIGN ARC Arc Seven.1 is the category winner for: DU BOIS DESIGN TIDA Australian Designer Bathroom. LINES DESIGN How we design our bathrooms has become just as important as how we design our kitchens – not only in terms of providing a relaxing and enjoyable space for ourselves, but also in terms of re-sale value. Yet bathrooms present their own set of challenges to designers. The judges were impressed by the innovative ways these two TIDA-winning bathrooms overcame those challenges, to create very functional spaces that are also highly attractive. They now progress to be judged alongside other award-winning bathrooms in their respective countries, to identify the TIDA New Zealand and the TIDA Australian Bathroom of the Year winners. And those winners will go forward to our international awards, to ultimately identify the TIDA International Bathroom of the Year. Trends and TIDA congratulate Du Bois Design and Arc Seven.1 for the winning designs featured here, and look forward to seeing how they progress through the next stages of the TIDAs.
