Bottle Alley Glass to create Surface Design Awards 2013

The trophies for the Surface Design Awards 2013 have been exclusively created by Bottle Alley Glass, a company that takes unwanted and discarded glass bottles and turns them into a unique range of beautiful recycled glass products including worktops, tiles, splash backs and tables.

The trophies are made from recycled bottle glass that is fused into new glass sheets.  The Award will be cut and polished in-house at Bottle Alley Glass before the Surface Design logo is engraved on the front.

Philippa Ashbee, Owner of Bottle Alley Glass says “We are very excited to be creating the trophies for the Surface Design Awards from our recycled glass, which is not only made from recycled bottles, but which can also then be recycled again, closing the recycling-reusing-reducing circle. Our recycled glass has many surface design uses and therefore works very well with the Surface Design Show and we can’t wait to exhibit there next year.” 

The Surface Design Awards are being launched to mark the 10th anniversary of Surface Design Show, a show focused solely on materials for surface design. The Awards will recognise examples of progressive design and the use of innovative surfaces in projects both in the UK and internationally.

Christopher Newton, Director of Surface Design Show said “We wanted to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show by giving something back to the industry. These new awards will be given to the architects, designers, contractors and clients who have created something special, and commissioning Bottle Alley Glass to design and create these bespoke trophies reflects the wealth of creativity and innovation within the industry.”

The ten Awards span six categories and the shortlist and overall winners will be chosen by a panel of architects and designers co-chaired by Felix Mara, Editor of the AJ Specification and Vanessa Brady, President of the Society of British Interior Design.

The Awards will be presented at Business Design Centre, London on Thursday 7 February 2013, the last day of Surface Design Show.
