To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Awards, we have chosen a new landmark venue. In 2012, the Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Awards will be held at one of the City’s most iconic landmarks – the Tower of London. We are delighted to be hosting the Awards in an exclusive marquee within the North Moat.

Looking forward to the trip down to London on the 15th for the UK Designer Awards. Unfortunately on this occasion my good lady can’t accompany me as she has ‘double booked’ a shopping trip in Lyon!

However a few of my team will make the trip with me and win or lose I’m just happy to be considered and being Scotland’s sole finalist amongst UK’s best studios is a victory in it’s own right.

Colin Wong, Design Director of Development Direct receiving the UK Design Award sponsored by Neff from BBC’s John Inverdale and chief editor of Designer Magazine, Martin Allen-Smith.
Held at the exclusive Hurlingham Club in London in October 2012, Colin picked up this prestigious award on the sponsor’s 40th Anniversary Awards. The judging panel included Ysanne Brooks of Beautiful Kitchens and Martin Allen-Smith from the Designer Magazine.
To cap this great ceremony with this accolade is extremely satisfying. When you make the long trek down from Edinburgh, you just want to enjoy the day and try and put the winning or losing to the back of your mind so when it comes to hear your name announced, it’s makes a great day a memory for life.
Thanks must go to my hardworking team who keep me on my toes and always look to better our last designs.
Thanks guys’

Colin Collects NEFF Kitchen Design Award 2012

by Dev Direct on October 19, 2012

Colin receiving his NEFF Kitchen Design Award 2012 from BBC sports presenter John Inverdale and Designer Chief editor, Martin Allen-Smith at the exclusive Hurlingham Club in London.
It was an extremely enjoyable day at The Hurlingham Club in London, which will have lasting memories having won this special award.
My team is small but extremely hardworking, always looking to surpass that ‘last design’ which is why this means a lot to me. Being recognised on a national scale is a reward that will only help us design to new levels.
With new clients and new ideas, our job is always evolving and that is the beauty of design and why I love my job so much
