The winners of the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards were announced in central London this week. Only in its second year and with nearly 400 entries from over 38 countries worldwide, the evening was a great success.

Judged by a highly-influential panel of top design, hospitality and lifestyle editors both the designers and hospitality operators were recognised for design excellence across a wide variety of categories. Overall winners for Best Restaurant were Galvin La Chapelle (pictured above) in London designed by designLSM. Best Bar was awarded to The Tote in India designed by Serie Architects.

Cinimod Studio were commissioned to create a system unique to the event. RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology was used to identify key visitors on the two ‘networking pods’ during the evening's proceedings. The Awards were the first event that combined this technology to create a truly 'connected' environment.

The design of the Awards event reflected the entrants’ creativity and offered a unique space where guests were able to network effectively in innovative ways.
