design et al – The International Design & Architecture Awards

The Best of Africas & Gulf States Hospitality Design

The Best Of Africas & Gulf States Hospitality Design:

XO Atelier shortlisted for 2020, two categories have closed & Stickman Tribe’s thoughts on recognition…

As publishers for the design industry globally, we feel it is vitally important that we continue to share your work, promote your new collections, endorse new ideas and innovations and show the design world just how strong we are as a community. We may not be able to travel to conferences, overseas meetings and events for a while, but we at design et al, will do all we can to expose your work to clients globally during this time.

All awards PR, editorial, digital news edits and magazines will be published as usual. We will be adding to our global communication with The Best of Africas & Gulf States Hospitality Design update, along with further news edits and PR global level to help keep this industry moving.


XO Atelier’s design brief was to create a moment of pause in the heart of a vibrant city. A retreat for the city’s playful socialites, the restaurant should be luxurious without being overstated, elegant but infused with personality, accented with rich detailing and a soft colour palette. A place where guests can relax, interact, and focus on the flavours of the food.

XO Atelier have been shortlisted for Restaurant – Global Award in The International Hotel and Property Awards 2020.

How would you describe your personal design style?
My approach is not to have one set style. I treat every project as a blank canvas, I take the time to hear the client’s brief, study the space and then formulate my own vision of the project and more importantly defining its unique selling points.

How important are The International Hotel and Property Awards as recognition of talent and achievement?
Being positive should be a way of life and receiving recognition for your work and achievements is a great start. All designers should embrace the opportunity to appreciate this industry and admire the work of their peers. This will not only help them develop personally but will also inspire them when working on future projects.
