Glasses were raised and lights dazzled at one of the most talked about design events of the year. The Wallpaper* Design Awards on the 12th January 2011 saw some of the world’s top designers, artists and architects come together to see the best designs from the last year at our very own office headquarters, Edison House. Winners included Yves Saint Laurent, Bogetta Veneta and Prada for best men’s shoes; Hermès for best eco luxury with the Petit h collection; and Chanel for best watch ‘J12 Rétrograde Mystérieuse.’
Greeting the guests were two slick Aston Martin’s Cygnet cars, whilst inside, one floor was filled with award-winning designs lit up dramatically against the sparse, loft-style backdrop of our office. Upstairs, guests were able to dance to best disco winners, Simian Mobile Disco, and climbing higher to our roof terrace, behold a breath-taking view of London’s skyline.
