Amy Bartlett who graduated from BA (Hons) Printed Textiles & Surface Pattern Design in 2014, has won the Alumni Choice Award for her product ‘Geometric Perspectives: Structure, Form and Repetition’ at the New Design Britain Awards (NDBA) at May Design Series held at London ExCel.

The Alumni’s Choice award was chosen by the Alumni Collective, composed of past NDBA finalists.  The categories include Furniture, Accessories, Fabrics, Interior Design, Architecture and Surfaces.  Amy was chosen for the award from a shortlist of 30 from across the six categories.

We caught up with Amy earlier in the month and asked her about her entry and what winning would mean for her.

“My entry for New Design Britain was a collection of surfaces that I developed throughout my final year at Leeds College of Art that have the potential to be contextualised across a variety of interior surface applications including wall coverings and furniture. The surfaces are driven by material explorations into geometric forms and perspectives, inspired in particular by modernist architectural structures.

I hope that it (NDBA) will lead to new opportunities and I am also excited to meet other designers from different design disciplines in the hope that it might lead to some interesting collaborative projects in the future.”
