The 2017 INDE.Awards gala is happening this Friday! And we’re very excited to reveal the shortlist for The Building award, sponsored by Cult. Whilst not building designers, Cult’s suite of brands celebrate what may be traditionally identified as architectural thinking, but at a smaller scale. The importance of process, delicacy of form, virtues of concision and the recognition of an audience that occupies a specific time and a specific place are all necessary considerations for successful furniture design, as they are for the buildings that Cult’s brands inhabit.

Join us in celebrating these stellar examples of building design this Friday.
