Winner: Monsieur Bleu – Paris
“This impressive restaurant in Paris’ Palais de Tokyo is a dramatic space designed by prolific local designer Joseph Dirand. Huge suspended geometric lights, originally designed for the French Embassy in Brazil, make the most of the room’s soaring ceilings, while four Lalique glass panels from the original 1930s interior punctuate a side wall. Chef Benjamin Masso (formerly of Pétrus) serves French brasserie-style dishes, such as suckling pig with a spice glaze and mashed potato. A decadent caviar list is also on offer.”
The winner of “Best domestic Design”:
Winner: Terra Cotto pots, by Stefania Vasquez, for Sambonet
“Founded in 1856, Sambonet has been at the forefront of kitchenware innovation and design for decades. This year, the brand collaborated with Sicilian designer Stefania Vasquez to produce a set of contemporary terracotta pots in a bold palette of colours and minimal shapes. Vasquez hopes the pots will revive interest in terracotta cooking. The material allows for gradual heat diffusion which enhances flavours, and Vasquez has compiled a book of her grandmother’s recipes to be included with each pot.”

Last year, the pair opened the Design Commune in Shanghai, which houses fashion retailers, a design gallery, a restaurant and a loft apartment, as well as their retail venture, Design Republic, which aims to bring international design to the Chinese market. This year, they also designed a furniture collection for De La Espada and Stellar Works and Camper’s flagship in Shanghai.”
Joint Winner: Philippe Nigro
“This year, French-born, Milan-based designer Philippe Nigro was enlisted by Hermès to create a capsule collection of furniture pieces called Les Nécessaires d’Hermès, blending French luxury with Oriental sensibility. The designer’s first full collection, it is comprised of simple, versatile objects such as stackable side tables and decorative screens. Other recent work includes two designs for Baccarat: the retro-looking, modular hanging light ‘Clochette’; and ‘Céleste’, which is inspired by an Oriental lantern.”
