Wood Awards 2017 shortlist revealed
Twenty outstanding structures and a record 14 furniture and product projects have been nominated for the Wood Awards 2017 shortlist, the TRADA-sponsored competition that features some of Britain’s best designs in wood.
The judging panel of the Buildings category, led by architect Michael Morrison of Purcell, will visit all the shortlisted projects in person, making this a uniquely rigorous competition.
The judges reviewed applications in a variety of categories including: Commercial & Leisure, Education & Public Sector, Interiors, Private and Small Projects. Meanwhile, four bespoke, four production and six student designs have been selected by the judges for the Furniture and Product category, led by Max Fraser, design curator and author.
The shortlist will be showcased at the London Design Fair (Stand B05, Hall T2), Old Truman Brewery, 21-24 September.
Winners will be revealed at the annual Wood Awards ceremony at Carpenters’ Hall on 21st November, by ceremony host Johanna Agerman Ross, Founder of Disegno magazine and Curator of Twentieth Century and Contemporary Furniture and Product Design at the V&A.
