With the SBID International Design Awards only five days away, Hospitality Interiors takes a look at the high calibre finalists for the Hotel Design and Restaurant and Bar Design categories  ...

An influx of entries from over 40 countries and five continents has resulted in the biggest selection of finalists to date - proof that the awards has come to be highly-regarded within the interior design industry. Each category undergoes an exclusive two-tier judging process by panels of leading industry experts for both technical content and aesthetic creativity, and elements such as brief compliance, budget, health & safety, and fit-for-purpose design.

The winners will be announced and awarded with the crystal SBID International Design Awards 2015 trophy at the official ceremony, held at The Dorchester hotel London on Friday 27 November 2015.

The judges this year included industry leaders from The Studio at Harrods, The Boeing Company, BBC Radio 2 & 6, Google and more.
