Vancouver Designer wins GRAND PRIZE in National Competition
Lianna Armstrong Creates Winning Concept Showcasing Luxury Bathroom Fixture Line
Vancouver, British Columbia: Lianna Armstrong of Evolve Designs in Vancouver has been named the winner of DXV’s 2015 Design Competition, a Canada-wide competition judged by a panel of interior design industry experts including 2014 DXV Design Competition Winner Genevieve Ghaleb, Jean Jacques L’Henaff, Vice President of Design DXV, as well as Designers Regina Sturrock, Meredith Heron and Corey Klassen.
Entrants were required to select a classic story as a theme showcasing at least two items from DXV’s range of luxury products. Drawings, renderings, mood boards, and concept boards were used to communicate the concepts for judging. A recreation of the winning design will be built and featured at the Interior Design Show in Toronto in January 2016 and again at IDS West in Vancouver in September 2016.
Armstrong’s design, which brings to life C.S. Lewis’s classic tale The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was chosen as the Grand Prize winner amongst entries from across the country. From the concept statement: “Follow us to Narnia – the wondrous world created by C.S. Lewis that inspired this fantastical design. A regal freestanding tub is the centrepiece of the design, recalling the altar on which the life of one of the story’s central characters both ended and started anew. We interpreted other features of the story using flocked trees for the mysterious woods, a pendant light for the iconic lamp post, a millwork passageway for the wardrobe, and a gleaming white frieze for the mystical Aslan.”
”This design speaks to me right off the top. I think that it’s a wonderful story with universal appeal and balances the masculine with the feminine – a great example of a modern classic bathroom” ~ Meredith Heron
