Hettich brand ambassador, Mal Corboy has won top honours at the National KBDi Kitchen and Bathroom Designer Awards.

Mal won the Australian Certified Designer of the Year award as well as the Medium Kitchen of the Year, Tasmanian, and Victorian Kitchen Designer of the year and Large Kitchen Victoria/Tasmania (special commendation).

Corboy had previously won the Australian Kitchen Designer of the Year Award in 2009.

Held recently on the Gold Coast, the National KBDi Kitchen and Bathroom Designer Awards recognised many of Australia’s best kitchen and bathroom designers for their contributions to kitchen and bathroom design over the past year.

Corboy feels honoured by the recognition and comments that both his award-winning kitchen designs featured an extensive use of Hettich cabinet hardware, storage solutions and lighting.

He attributes his preference for Hettich products in his designs to their quality and innovation, saying that the brand offers some of the most amazing fittings, cabinetry and storage ideas that include all the extras from soft close door fittings to full-extension slide runners.

The two award-winning designs featured Hettich products extensively including storage solutions that added to the final look, but also kept everything organised and out of the way. The finishes, like ProDecor handles and soft-close fittings lent a touch of elegance to the designs, adds Corboy. 

As the winner of the Designer of the Year Award, Corboy will take part in the KBDi International Designers Tour and travel to Italy for Eurocucina, the world’s premiere expo for kitchen and bathroom design, product and accessories.
