Restaurant and Bar Design Awards winners announced

Les Haras, a restaurant in Strasbourg (France) designed by Jouin Manku, and FEI, a bar in Guanzhou (China) designed by A.N.D. are the overall winners of the 2014 Restaurant & Bar Design Awards.

Another 29 category winners were revealed at the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards’ winners function, which took place at London’s Old Truman Brewery on the 25th September. Several cutting edge design firms had transformed the building into a spectacular event space for the foremost hospitality design awards function.

The Restaurant and Bar Design Awards now in its sixth year is the only awards in the world dedicated to the design of food and beverage spaces. This covers every imaginable space, from ships to airports, museums to burger vans, and from revered Michelin-starred establishments to the fleeting dynamism of pop-ups.

With over 3000 entries from the UK and 70 other countries in the past six years, the Awards attracts the world’s top designers, hospitality operators and judges. Recent names include Zaha Hadid, Kengo Kuma, Tom Dixon, Foster & Partners (Designers), Stephen Alden, Gordon Ramsay, Oliver Peyton (Operators) and Tony Chambers, Fay Maschler, Alberto Alessi, Thomas Heatherwick (Judges) and many more.

Taschen published a book about the Awards in April 2014.
