Canadian studio Partisans and Singapore-based Dutch architect Camiel Weijenberg were among the design talents selected as laureates of the platinum A' Design Award in the annual competition's 2014-2015 edition. Sweeping the Architecture, Building and Structure Design category with its smooth interior of curvacious timber, Partisans' Grotto Sauna is a habitable haven embedded into a craggy landscape.
Topping 2015's Interior space and Exhibition design category, Camiel Weijenberg's Taipei restaurant Raw reflects the culinary offerings of Chef André Chiang with a canopy and bar carved from an organically-shaped wooden sculptural centerpiece.

The annual A' Design Awards was conceived as the official accolade which charts innovation in the prolific design industry while placing the creators into the spotlight.
The contest includes a broad range of general to specific categories – 100 to be exact – with the following as a sampling: 'Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design', 'Fashion, Apparel and Garment Design', 'Interior Space and Exhibition Design', 'Textile, Fabric, Textures, Patterns and Cloth Design', '3D Printed Forms and Products' and 'Architecture, Building and Structure Design'. If none of these are your cup of tea, a neutral category will classify even the most hypercreative works. Comprised of a sampling of professionals from creative fields, academia and press outlets, an international jury follows the principles and strict selection guidelines set forth by the A' Design Awards committee.
