A Yorkshire animation and CGI studio specialising in 3D visualisation and virtual reality has been shortlisted for a prestigious international design award.
Virtual Resolution has been recognised by judges in the Society of British and International Design (SBID) Awards for its work on a cutting-edge new restaurant in Germany.
The Elland-based studio worked alongside specialist interior design firm Robert Angell Design International to deliver a series of CGIs as part of their creative process at Fritz & Felix in Baden Baden. The images enabled the design team to choose the perfect materials for the restaurant, as well as demonstrating the plans to guests and clients before the restaurant opened.
Winning an SBID International Design Award is regarded by the industry as one of the highest achievements in interior design. In 2017 Virtual Resolution won the SBID’s CGI & Visualisation Award for its work to support the redevelopment of the DeVere Tortworth Court Hotel.
Managing director Tim Power said: “We are hugely proud to have been shortlisted again in the CGI and Visualisation category of the SBID awards. It puts us on a par with some of the most ambitious and talented design studios in the world.
“We’ve worked alongside Robert Angell on several projects around the world, each featuring different influences, styles and materials. Our design team enjoyed bringing life to the stunning concept for Baden Baden, helping to visualise the fantastic design before work began on site.”
Entries are assessed by leading industry experts for their technical content and aesthetic creativity, while members of the public can also vote for their favourite. This year the SBID Awards have received a record number of entries from designers in 48 countries, an increase of nearly 20 per cent on the previous year.
Fritz & Felix is a new fine dining restaurant and bar concept in the Brenners Park Hotel & Spa which showcases the talents of rising star chef Nenad Mlinarevic. Robert Angell created stylish yet warm interiors in polished wood, copper and leather, with sleek lines, a subtle 1920s theme and hues of dark orange and brown.
The restaurant itself has already won numerous awards, including being named Best Restaurant within a Hotel in Europe at the 2019 International Hotel and Property Awards.
Mr Power is now hoping for support in the public vote for Virtual Resolution’s entry at www.sbidawards.com by the deadline of 5pm on Monday, September 9.
“Being selected by the judges for the shortlist is an honour,” said Mr Power. “We hope we’ll now win the support of the public for our work, and we look forward to meeting all the finalists at the awards night in the autumn.”
All winners and finalists will be featured in the Global Interior Design 2019 book which is distributed to over 1000 professionals across the globe and available to purchase on the SBID Awards website.
