Congratulations to Karolina Kurek, Product Design sophomore at Otis College of Art and Design, for winning first place in the Christopher Guy BritWeek Design Award Competition! British luxury furniture designer Christopher Guy Harrison, celebrated for fusing classicism and modernism, is best known for his patented Chris-X leg design.

 

LOS ANGELES, CA, May, 2012 — Aspiring interior and product designers from art schools far and wide entered the competition in the hopes of advancing a career in the high-end furnishing industry. Out of 21 submissions, Karolina’s design was chosen as the best by a prestigious panel of judges: renowned designers Philip Treacy, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Birgit Muller, and Christopher Guy Harrison himself.

The competition’s challenge was to design pieces of furniture or decorative accessories following key Christopher Guy design elements, but based on the remarkable creations of Philip Treacy, the celebrated haute couture hat designer, who also has designed hats for Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel, Valentino, Ralph Lauren and Donna Karan.

As first place winner of the competition, Karolina will intern at the Christopher Guy headquarters in Singapore, and work one-on-one with head designer Christopher Guy Harrison and his team as they develop and launch new collections. She will receive an all-expense paid trip to London to visit the Christopher Guy UK operations, and a four-day trip to visit the Christopher Guy exhibit during the Maison et Objet exhibition in Paris, one of the world's most prestigious furnishing exhibitions.

In conjunction with the Grand Opening of the new Christopher Guy showroom and BritWeek, the second annual Christopher Guy BritWeek Design Award ceremony was held on Saturday, May 5, in West Hollywood. Sponsored by Architectural Digest, the private award presentation and cocktail reception party announced and celebrated the winner and runner-up of the design competition.

Guests included prominent design professionals in the Los Angeles and Southern California area; the BritWeek organization and their guests; the design schools and their students; Christopher Guy Harrison, Philip Treacy, Martyn Lawrence Bullard and Birgit Muller.
