Timorous Beasties scoops 'British Luxury Design Talent' title

Nov '10
Textiles and wallpaper design specialist, Timorous Beasties took the 'Best Luxury Design Talent' title on Monday 15 November at the prestigious Walpole 2010 awards in London.

The Glasgow-based company beat off stiff competition, including fellow Scot Christopher Kane, to scoop the title which recognises designers that have maintained the highest standard of British design talent through innovation, design and product quality during the year.

Reflecting on the win, Alistair McAuley, joint Partner said:“What a fabulous honor to be recognised as the 'British Luxury Design Talent for 2010'. To receive this accolade is true endorsement of our hard work from our peers in the luxury industry, and even more special as we approach the 21st birthday of Timorous Beasties.”

Timorous Beasties' experimental approach to both hand-printing and machine production, often depicting uncompromisingly contemporary images on traditional textiles and wallpapers caught the eyes of the judging panel which included Marcus Fairs, editor of Dazeen magazine, and David Kester, CEO of Design Council.

This award follows the successful launch earlier this year in New York of Timorous Beasties innovative range of digitally printed 'Solid Wallcoverings' garnering the prestigious Editor's Award at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair.

Last month Timorous Beasties showcased their latest rug and carpet collaboration with Brintons Carpets and 'Ramshead' upholstery fabric with Bute Fabrics at the London Design Festival. And after this recent win it seems the end of the year will continue to be busy for the Scottish firm.

Now in its 9th year, the Walpole Awards, sponsored Vertu, honours individuals and companies for their work in the luxury sector both in Britain and around the world, celebrating their outstanding achievements in design, craftsmanship, business and culture. Past winners include Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Dunhill, Paul Smith, Goodwood, Links of London, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Aston Martin and Marc Jacobs, amongst others.

Julia Carrick, CEO of Walpole commented: “This year's award winners represent the very best of global luxury talent and we are delighted to be able to recognise their exceptional achievements.”

Hugh Bonneville – the highly acclaimed British actor and star of ITV drama Downton Abbey was on hand to present the awards, crafted by Asprey at the Banqueting House in Whitehall.

Over 500 leading figures from the British and International luxury industries attended the annual event including Angela Ahrendts, CEO of Burberry, Marco Bizzari, CEO of Bottega Veneta, Arnaud Bamberger, MD of Cartier, Vicente Castellano, CEO of Hackett, Michael Ward, MD of Harrods, Barbara Snoad, CEO of Theo Fennell and Mark Sebba, CEO of Net à Porter.

This year Walpole, a not-for-profit organisation that represents the British luxury industry, awarded the Medal of Excellence to Lord March, The Earl of March and Kinrara, CEO, The Goodwood Estate who has transformed Goodwood from a family estate to a globally renowned UK luxury destination.
