Bombay Sapphire Winners 2007

Design duo behind bernabeifreeman named Bombay Sapphire 2007 winners

Bombay Sapphire Winners 2007


October 31st, 2007

Inspired by traditional textiles, Rina Bernabei and Kelly Freeman – the design team behind bernabeifreeman – have received the Bombay Sapphire Design Discovery Award 2007.

Presented with the award at a VIP industry event on 30 October in Sydney, the bernabeifreeman ladies both received trips to Milan and a $30,000 scholarship, which will assist in developing their `TOTEM’ range.

Their ecologically sustainable entry, `TOTEM’, was highly regarded by the judging committee who also recognised their entire body of work.

Responding to an increasing demand for eco-friendly products, `TOTEM’ is made from a revolutionary mouldable hemp material with resin-like qualities.

The Bombay Sapphire award is held annually to recognise outstanding work by emerging designers.
