We are pleased to announce that Kit Miles Studio has been awarded the prize for Best Use of Colour in the Young Designer category at the 2015 Dulux Let’s Colour Awards, held at the newly refurbished extension of the Serpentine Gallery by Zaha Hadid Architects. Kit accepted his award for his work on his Birds in Chains wallpaper, which features his mesmerising and innovative use of colour balance, incorporating his signature hand draftsmanship.
Kit’s designs have a richness and depth that is beautiful and often complex. His works display a particularly exciting use of colour which manages to be exotic, classical and technically advanced all at the same time.
– Louise Todd, Chief Executive of Global Colour, Dulux
“The Colour and Design team at Dulux are thrilled that Kit was the winner of the prestigious Dulux Let’s Colour Award. We have been following his career with growing excitement and having just had a sneak preview of this year’s brand new collection. It promises to take his confident use of colour and remarkable skill of craftsmanship to a whole new level. One bright, colourful star to keep on watching.”
– Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director, Dulux
Deyan Sudjic, Director of the Design Museum, and host of the Let’s Colour Awards ceremony, comments:
Colour has been an essential part of the work of some of the most significant designers of our times and the Let’s Colour Awards acknowledges the many talented people over the past year who have made a positive difference to our lives through the power of colour and design. This year’s nominations have included everything from young designers at the start of their careers, to technological innovations, great architecture, and impressive new work, connected by a sense of understanding what colour can do and make us feel. It’s been a real pleasure to award the individuals and organisations who have excited and delighted us with their imaginative use of colour and design.
Speaking at the event, Dulux Creative Director and Head Judge, Marianne Shillingford, said
“The Let’s Colour Awards celebrate the transformative power that colour can bring to people’s lives and with nearly a third of us believing that we’d be happier with more colour in our lives – we really should be celebrating colour every day.”
Created by the UK’s leading paint brand, Dulux, the Let’s Colour Awards are designed to celebrate and reward the most innovative uses of colour and design across the wide spectrum of Britain’s creative industries and events. For further information, visit www.duluxcolourawards.com.
