The International Design & Architecture Awards

Hosted by Design et Al, the International Design & Architecture Awards commends great design. This year, the ‘Howes’ table by Davidson and Taylor Howes was awarded the Best Table prize. The result of a six month collaborative process, the piece is more akin to artwork, boasting an eye-catching radial pattern on its surface and a bronze relief inlaid to the edge and base.

It is a “true celebration and exemplar of British craftsmanship…the skilled team at Davidson brought it to life,” says CEO Karen Howes. The Tollgård Design Group picked up the Interior Design Scheme – Europe award for its completion of a summer house project in Fanø, Denmark. “I was determined to connect it as coherently to the landscape as possible, to create a retreat from city life,” says co-founder Staffan Tollgård about the minimalist interior he created within the 300-year old building.
