The CEDA Grand Prix Award 2021 winner for the Design Project Under £50,000 was Court Catering Equipment.
The London distributor was rewarded for its work at Harrods Beauty Bar at the Lakeside retail centre in Grays, Essex.
The project brief was to design and install an Instagram-worthy Champagne bar at the first new standalone Harrods outside of London, providing a sleek and sophisticated area where clients could sit, sip and enjoy high quality drinks and nibbles with friends.
The Harrods food and beverage team wanted to showcase their menu of sweets and treats with hot, cold and alcoholic beverages available throughout the day.
The completed project needed to be functional, stylish, sophisticated and look good with a very high quality finish sympathetic to the overall design of the whole area.
Harrods’ Procurement category manager Coutenay Grieveson praised: “We absolutely love the Champagne bar.”
Court was also shortlisted in this category for its Chelsea Football club scheme, along with Vision Commercial Kitchens’ project at The Compasses Inn in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
