Another Italian-born judge joining the nine-strong CID Awards judging panel is Cecilia Morosi, design director of ASZ Architetti & SuperFutureDesign*.
A passion for creating meaningful spaces balancing bold design with superior functionality has seen Morosi take on significant commercial and residential projects in China and the UAE. She has had a hand in the masterplan for the Luodian Luxury Outlet Village in Shanghai and the World Trade Centre Mall in Wuxi. In the Middle East, stand-out projects include the office of French jewellery maker Cartier Middle East in Emirates Towers. Her repertoire is further enhanced by retail spaces for the likes of Burberry, Gucci and Piaget.
Being a judge is both a “big responsibility” and a “nice way to celebrate the best design of the Middle East”, she says. With such a distinguished background in architecture and design, what is Morosi looking for in potential winners this years, as we edge ever closer to awards night?
“I’ve been in this industry for more than 10 years and I know how hard it is to arrive at the end of a project, having kept the first concept idea without spoiling it on the way. I’ll be looking to celebrate creativity and design… I would love to concentrate on the projects without knowing the names of the designers; projects should speak for themselves.”
Commercial Interior Design would like to thank the judges for giving up time in their busy schedules to select the 2019 winners, as well as extend our warmest to everyone who has entered the awards. We wish everyone the best of luck.
