Leaders in kitchen luxuries such as wine preservation, bespoke cooking equipment and state-of-the-art refrigeration, Sub-Zero and Wolf are industry giants who have helped to acknowledge premier design professionals and elevate careers across the globe. KDC is a prestigious contest which celebrates exceptional kitchen designs with heart, ingenuity and creativity.
Jim Bakke, president and CEO of Sub-Zero Group, Inc. says, “contest after contest, we have been continuously inspired by the impressive kitchen designs submitted and the exceptional creators behind them. We are proud to provide a platform for these pioneering professionals and their work to shine and receive the recognition they deserve.”
Now it’s your turn to join the elite group.
Leading designers from all around the world submit their entries to KDC in hopes of earning the prestigious title of Finalist and Global winner along with more than $300,000 USD in prizes. An international panel of seven talented judges – all previous KDC winners and interdisciplinary industry leaders – evaluate each entry anonymously.
Passion, innovation and creativity are heavily rewarded. Designs are critiqued on the functionality and aesthetics, both for the overall kitchen design and regarding the use of Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. Thirteen global winners will be announced at the KDC Summit and Gala in the US in 2024, and forty-two finalists will receive a cash prize and an all-expenses paid trip for two to attend.
