KBDi Design Space Award proudly sponsored by CMIB

KBDi’s Insurance Partner, CMIB, are proud sponsors of the KBDi Designer Awards Design Space category in 2018.

We have three fantastic entries vying for the accolade on Saturday, 9 June, 2018, and we congratulate both Sarah Nolen (Birdblack Design) and Darren Genner CKD Au (Minosa) on their inspiring work. Learn more about each of the projects below, and comment with your favourite!

The new owners of this fish cafe were looking for a way to re-invent this iconic eatery, and designer Sarah Nolen (Birdblack Design) delivered! Inspired by the beachside location, Sarah played with vibrant fish-scale mosaics, tropical wallpaper and a fresh colour palette, creating well thought out zones within the overall space.

An underground space filled with dirt, pipes, cables and a watertank was cleverly converted to a luxurious spa room by designer Darren Genner CKD Au of Minosa. Fine finishes, layered lighting and alluring organic forms add opulance and elegance to this stunning steam retreat.

Housing both a hair salon and a cocktail bar, this New York City inspired zone called for exceptional space planning, fantastic finishes and plenty of wow! Designer Sarah Nolen (Birdblack Design) rose to the challenge, creating a striking new space for the Blow Bar.

The drinks are on Schweigen!

The drinks are on Schweigen!

The official Welcome Drinks of the KBDi Design Symposium will be held at the award-winning Glass Dining and Lounge Bar at Main Beach on the Gold Coast on Friday, 8 June, 2018

Schweigen Home Appliances are generously footing the tab for this one, as members from across the country gather together for drinks with their fellow designers. While there’s some healthy state rivalry at the Gala event, we’re always amazed (and so very proud) of the interstate friendships we’ve seen flourish each year at our Symposium.

We’ll certainly be toasting our incredible design community at the Welcome Drinks, and thank Schweigen for their generous sponsorship of this event.
