Date: 18 July 2014
BA (Hons) Interior Architecture graduate Nikita Wilson has been named 'Rising Star of 2014' at the Interior Educators (IE) exhibition at the Truman Brewery as The Cass won 2 of the 8 awards at the annual IE exhibition, the national showcase for Interiors graduates. Over 30 Universities from across the UK and overseas exhibited.
This is the second year running BA Interior Architecture & Design students have won prizes at Freerange, last year gaining the title 'Best in Show'.
Nikita's projects 'The Clay Machine' and 'The Tea Dance; a dancing landscape', a reinvention of the Sailmakers Wharf in Limehouse, were selected by a panel of designers, architects and journalists. The Cass exhibition was also awarded, 'Best Course Pavilion'.
The light, restrained stand, three 3m x 3m steel frames holding layered timber planes, allowed the quality of the project work of the BA (Hons) Interior Design and BA (Hons) Interior Architecture students to be shown really clearly, and the award re-affirmed the comments, and offers of work, that students received over the weekend. A great night for all the Interior students and staff.
