The Office Expo launched the Decade of Design Competition this year to identify the best commercial fit-out projects in the UAE over the last 10 years in the categories of corporate space, hotel and mixed use buildings.
AK Design, UAE won Best of Category / Corporate Space – Small, for its Al Mojil Investment.
“Winning the Decade of Design competition for best Corporate Small Space is of great importance to all of us at AK Design,” said Kim Nielsen, design director, AK Design.
“We believe that ‘good’ design is the rational and timeless way in which we shape the space around us, while linking the design to the region and adding enjoyment to the end-users.”
According to IIDA (International Interior Design Asscoation), the design firms honoured for their projects evoke a sense of the future while incorporating beautifully restrained, yet worldly and luxurious palates.
