Awarded to the interior design firm with 20 employees or more that has completed the most impressive work in the Middle East in the past 12 months, 2016 Interior Design Firm of the Year award went to Perkins + Will.
Formed in 2010 by just three people who were committed to becoming a design force in the region, Perkins + Will now employs a team of 93. The judges called it “not only a great design firm, but a strong family of likeminded professionals who have a positive vibe in and out of the office.”
Upon receiving the award, Julijana Mitic, associate at Perkins + Will, said: “We are so proud of what Perkins + Will family has created so far. The most important acknowledgement is to our people as this is what makes our business exceptional. It has been a privilege to lead this group and to hear their comments about what it means to be part of Perkins+Will Dubai family.”
Commenting on the award, Matthew Sexton, director of CI at Perkins + Will, said it is an important acknowledgement by the industry peers as well as validation of everyone’s hard work.
“To win the CID firm of the year is a credit to our team. Perkins+Will values its people, to the extent that we can all make a difference. This shows trust, commitment but above all else, innovation. Without these qualities, we wouldn’t have the tools to push boundaries and shape the future of design,” said Sexton.
Highly commend fort his category by our judges was LW for its “incredibly strong concepts, which always address client goals.”
