RIBA London and RIBA Competitions announce winner to design the RIBA Lounge at MIPIM UK

Following a highly successful RIBA Competition in collaboration with RIBA London, architectural practice Draisci Studio has been selected to design the RIBA’s Lounge at MIPIM UK, which takes place from 21 – 23 October 2015 at Olympia. 

The RIBA Lounge will occupy a large 200m2 area in a prime position in the exhibition hall and will provide a quality, designer space for RIBA members and others to meet and do business. This is an exciting opportunity for Draisci Studio to showcase their creativity and architectural expertise. The RIBA is also working with Herman Miller, who will kindly supply the furniture for the lounge. 

Peter De Soissons, Sales Director for MIPIM UK organisers, Reed Midem UK, 

said: “Once again we had a phenomenal response for the design of the RIBA MIPIM UK Visitors Lounge, with spectacular and varied proposals. Making the final selection was very difficult, with such high calibre entries and imaginative ideas, so thank you to all the practices that entered the competition. 

“Finally the panel agreed on Draisci Studio for its memorable and innovative work to create a warm and stimulating space. The concept is colourful, stylish and playful whilst committing to the use of simple, cost effective and sustainable techniques throughout the design process.”
