Mt Difficulty wines is proud to announce that they have been named as Supporting Partner for the 2012 Australasian Eat-Drink-Design Awards.
Signature dishes, perfectly pitched drinks and impeccable service are an integral part of the eating and drinking experience, but a venue’s interior is an equally important ingredient. Design provokes an emotional response in us, whether it be a feeling of nostalgia, of delight, or a satisfying sense that we’re in the know. Good design is good for business – it attracts patrons (and keeps them coming back) and creates an efficient working environment for staff.
The annual Eat-Drink-Design Awards supports innovation and excellence in the design of hospitality premises of all scales and types, retail environments for the sale of food and beverages and visual identities for both. The program will recognize and celebrate Australia and New Zealand’s best projects, rewarding design achievement in six categories. From high-end restaurants and bars to offbeat hole-in-the-wall cafes and pop-ups, the awards are a unique forum for architects, designers and their clients to present their best new projects. The Eat-Drink-Design Awards is the only awards program in Australasia dedicated to this specialist area.
Entries will present a wide range of environments, including bars, nightclubs, fine-dining restaurants, cafes, retail spaces and pop-up installations and will survey architecture and design practices of all scales, specializations and locations.
A unique, themed event, the Eat-Drink-Design Awards ceremony and cocktail party will take place in Melbourne on Tuesday 23 October. More details to follow.
Entry is open to all design professionals regardless of their location for projects in New Zealand and Australia. Projects completed between 1 May 2010 and 30 June 2012 are eligible. and entries close on 27 July 2012.
