A look back at this year’s incredible Mixology Awards 2019

We have to confess that, once or twice, post-award ceremony, we’ve bitten our fingernails, just hoping and praying that the dancefloor will fill.

16/07/2019 2 min read

Well, this year we could have got ourselves a gin fizz and a large cigar each and headed out onto the terrace, so confident were we that said dancefloor would be rammed in a matter of seconds.

Sure enough, as soon as the amazing Jazzy B introduced the rest of Soul II Soul to the stage – including the simply mesmeric Karen Wheeler – the Mixology throng were under his spell.

Earlier, our audience took full advantage of the fine weather, enjoying drinks and views across the Thames, before tucking into a fine dinner. This, of course, was merely the prelude to the prestigious Mixology awards, which this year saw wins (on the product side) for Autex Acoustics, Shaw Contract, Dataflex, Bisley and Eikund. Project winners included Basha Franklin, Gensler, Squire & Partners, Royal Opera House and Stanton Williams, Goddard Littlefair and Concorde BGW.

The Furniture Provider award went to Hunters, the Manufacturer of the Year was Orangebox, D&B Company of the Year was given to Oktra, the Product Designer award was presented to Martin Ballendat and the Design Practice of the Year went to BDP.

It was a particularly great night for the Orangeboxers, who – as well as scooping the Manufacturer of the Year award – then celebrated in real style as their emotional MD, Mino Vernaschi (he was far from the only emotional one, by the way), deservedly picked up the Henry Pugh award for outstanding contribution to the industry. 

What a night – and what a performance by Soul II Soul. Best yet? Very possibly.
