Most people aspire to make the a-list but when our MD, Mark Newbery, was named on the recently published d-list we couldn’t have been happier.
So what exactly is the d-list?
The d-list is selection of 20 UK designers complied by Designer Kitchen & Bathroom magazine and has been created to highlight some of the brightest and best kitchen and bathroom design talent.
The inaugural d-list was launched in London at this year’s 100% Design, the UK’s largest design trade event.
Editor, Martin Allen-Smith says
“The purpose of the list is to bring together some of the industry design figures we feel you should know about. Our selection is made up of a wide range of designers, from some of the most innovative and inventive product designers to the most exciting and creative kitchen and bathroom project designers – everyone on the d-list is one to watch and all are names to follow over the coming years.
Some are up-and-comers who have only fairly recently started to make a name for themselves with their innovative and fresh new thinking, whilst others have been in and around the kitchen and bathroom sector a little longer, building up formidable track records for contributing creative excellence to the industry.
What they all have in common however is that their work inspires and encourages others to continue to raise the bar in kitchens and bathrooms, constantly suggesting new ways of utilising clever design to tackle problems old and new.”
When asked about being included on the list Mark said
“I am delighted to have made the d-list. Some of the other designers listed have been making huge strides forward in the industry for decades and it is a real honour to be up among them.”
