We said we’d keep you updated about our MA Interior Architecture and Design student, Chung Hang Chui – also known as Jason, who was up for a prestigious industry award in the 2018 Royal Society of Arts Student Design Awards.
We’re delighted to say that Jason won the top prize in the Winner of the Industry Award category for his design which was based around: Eat, Share, Live. The brief was to design an inclusive, sociable and multi-generational kitchen space that works for all age groups. Jason won the award for his United Kitchen – a self-assembly domestic use and disaster relief sociable kitchen with a rotatable and height-adjustable table.
Jason said: “I was delighted to pick up this prestigious award for my kitchen design. The design works in two ways, either for use in a normal family home or within a disaster relief area. The self-ensemble edge to the design is very important to disaster zone, meaning this type of kitchen can be set up, move and reuse anywhere. Winning the award means a lot to me, and I would like to say thank you to my parents, tutors and the judges for picking my design as part of these prestigious industry awards.”
Over 700 students from 27 countries went on to submit their work into the competition. Their proposals were judged by leading designers and industry experts in a rigorous two-stage process: anonymous offline shortlisting, followed by face to face interviews with finalists.
The awards, which are in their 94th year are the cream of the crop when it comes to student designs.
Jason will be presented with his award, next month in London, at an awards gala.
