Capsule Arts on the judging panel for the 2014 Commercial Interior Design Awards

We are delighted to announce that this year our very own Rachael Brown, co-founder and Director of Capsule Arts, is one of the judges for the 2014 Commercial Interior Design Awards. The CID Awards recognise interior design projects across seven categories in sectors like hospitality, institutional, office and residential. The awards also honour individuals and firms that have made an impact on design this year.

Rachael will be in good company - with other confirmed judges including Dean Skira, founder of Skira lighting; Barbara Bochnak, lead architect, Zaha Hadid Architects; Michelle Evans, creative director, AyKa design; Godwin Austen Johnson, founder of Luxury Interior Design blog; Alfred Johnson, founder and principal of Alfred Johnson Design; and Linsey Thomson, interior design teaching fellow, Heriot-Watt University Dubai.

Speaking to DesignMena about her inclusion on this year's judging panel, Rachael says, “I have followed the awards closely over the years and have been continuously impressed by the calibre of the nominees and also of the other judges. At Capsule Arts, we work closely with interior designers for our bespoke art consulting projects, so I hope to bring a new perspective to the panel, drawing upon my experience as an art consultant.”

Rachael's top pick of the categories: Leisure and Entertainment“We’re working on a lot more restaurants at Capsule Arts and it’s here that we have seen some really adventurous and unique concepts that show a highly creative and often quite playful approach to interior design.”
