Once again, we were thrilled to have Alessi as our prize spon­sor. Bright, bold and un­apolo­get­i­cally mag­i­cal – and filled with the power of emo­tion – Alessi has been at the fore­front of Ital­ian de­sign since 1921. The brand stunned win­ners with bril­liant colour­ful pieces from the beloved Cir­cus col­lec­tion by Mar­cel Wan­ders.


The Cosentino Group is a world leader in the pro­duc­tion and dis­tri­bu­tion of high-value in­no­va­tive sur­faces for the ar­chi­tec­ture and de­sign in­dus­try, such as Sile­stone and Dek­ton.

Its new lux­u­ri­ous gallery show­room in Busi­ness Bay re­veals a ded­i­ca­tion to the needs of the re­gion and an ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the city’s com­mit­ment to de­sign.
