GROHE Bath & Design Awards in association with AD India honoured the best interior designers and architects from the country, an award dedicated to India’s best bath spaces. The winners were selected via a contest and the top 10 winners were picked by a jury comprising reputable industry professionals. The glitzy event took place in New Delhi and was attended by several renowned names in the art and design field.
The contest’s prime purpose was to identify the next big league of architects/designers, supporting talent and growth. This event was particularly unmissable for any architect or interior designer that has a keen eye for everything bath-ware.
“For the first time in India, GROHE and AD have come together to host the country’s most prestigious Bath & Design Awards. Through this contest, our endeavour is to celebrate and honour the stalwarts of design and architecture, who are taking their craft to new heights. I believe our collaboration with AD for this unique, first-of-its-kind contest, is a natural one. We are delighted by the overwhelming response and participation we have received from the Architect & Designer community.” Bobby Joseph, Leader, LWT India and Subcontinent.
