• 2021 WIN Awards Quinine's Alex Whitlow on the judges panel


World Interior News Awards 2021

Alongside an international panel, Quinine’s Research and Strategy Director, Alex Whitlow was recently invited to judge at the WIN Awards, with hundreds of entries from consultancies around the world it’s an exciting scheme to be involved in.

Alex led the panel of judges to find the overall winner, from interiors categories which spanned the healthcare, hospitality, leisure, education, retail, residential and workplace sectors.

Alex said "It was an honour to be involved in the judging of the WIN Awards. With each and every category featuring such a diverse and rich collection of projects, it’s been an exciting scheme to be involved in."

At Quinine we focus on retail and the future of retail, so we tend to look at projects through a very broad lens. Design of spaces and interior design to us is not just about the look and feel, though that obviously plays a hugely important role. It’s also about how a space is zoned, how it flows and how it works operationally: how it works for the business, the brand, the customer and the staff.

Reflecting on all the entries it was great to see so many projects applying the same kind of thinking. Especially those shortlisted for the Grand Prix award for the most Outstanding Project.

With our passion for retail and the future of retail, it was especially exciting to see a retail interior, not just compete with these categories, but to walk away with the Grand Prix award for most Outstanding Project of the Year. Congratulations to Luk Studio and their project for The Assembled Market.
