    Nathan Johnson

    Australia’s best new bar, café, restaurant, retail space and temporary design has been revealed at the 2015 Eat Drink Design Awards, celebrating the role of design in the success of the hospitality industry.  

    Seven projects were awarded best design across six categories, the winners chosen from the 88-strong shortlist that was revealed in August.

    The winners were chosen by a jury of varied professional expertise, including an interior designer, an architect, two design editors and a chef.

    Besides the seven category prizes and twenty-six commendations, a Hall of Fame Award induction was also announced at the Eat Drink Design Awards ceremony held 17 November at Melbourne’s 64 Sutton event space. NSW designer Lazzarini Pickering was inducted into the program’s Hall of Fame for their now world-famous Icebergs at Bondi Beach, completed in 2002.
