New York, New York (PressExposure) August 28, 2013 -- Elite interior design and branding firm Igloodgn (pronounced "Igloo Design," http://igloodesign.ca), recently won first place in the International Interior Design Competition in September 2012 in the major city of Qingdao, China, drawing attention to the city's plans to expand their subway lines.
Igloodgn's elegant designs stood out among the rest with their cutting-edge and contemporary creation using Ceramica Bardelli ceramic tiles designed by Belgian architect Ronald Van Der Hilst. The major success of this project was covered by FRAME Magazine, Qingdao(nese) Magazine, Canadian Interiors, Interior Design, and many others. Because of its popularity in China, Igloodgn also received an invitation to enter their project into the British design competition, hosted by World Interiors News.
"Winning first place in the International Interior Design Competition in the major city of Qingdao was an extraordinary honor," begins Igloodgn's principal designer Anna Abbruzzo. "Ronald Van Der Hilst is an outstanding architect whose work is consistently levels beyond dazzling and elegant. We wanted to use the international language of imagery to suggest direction and traffic flow, so we orchestrated the tulips in the design to actually direct commuters toward escalators and the subway platform. We felt it appropriate and contextual to use Ronald Van Der Hilst's work, as Qingdao will be holding a huge horticultural festival in a few years."
Igloodgn is an upscale branding and interior design firm co-founded in 2005 by Chief Designers Anna Abbruzzo and Alain Courchesne. Since then, the company has gained much recognition for their exquisite branding and interior design projects. The premier firm works holistically on each project to ensure that elegant and glamorous concepts come to life for their commercial and residential clients. The designing pair, widely known for their innovative and modern work, were recently asked to be keynote speakers at the Interior Design Show West 2013 this coming September in Vancouver.
