An interior design student has scooped the inaugural Best Emerging Interior Designer award, organised by property developer Londonewcastle.
London Metropolitan University interior design student Linda Boronkay impressed a panel of judges including Tom Dixon with her contemporary apartment interior.
Boronkay’s winning entry will be on display at the 100% Design exhibition in London’s Earls Court later this year.
Londonewcastle claims that its brief attracted hundreds of entries from consultancies, architects, universities and colleges.
It called for entrants to create apartment interiors that would appeal to young professionals working in the creative industries, ‘who have a strong sense of style and are discerning in their tastes’.
The longlist was whittled down to six entries in April, and the winner was selected this week.
Boronkay will be officially named Britain’s Best Emerging Interior Designer at the 100% Design Awards held in September.
