Senator Matt Thistlethwaite hosted the announcement of the Reece Bathroom Innovation award winners on Saturday 20 August at the Reece showroom in Sydney.

Baths were the winners in both the professional and student categories. Justin Wagemakers of Blue Sky Design Group in Sydney received the professional prize for Bathe. Wagemakers designed Bathe as a practical sanctuary, taking into account the different ways people use baths. Toby Nowlands received the student prize for Eggshell Bath. Soft and organic, its light, delicate, tranquil, egg-shaped form was inspired by nature.

The judging panel for the awards included David Clark of Vogue Living, interior designer and presenter of Selling Houses Australia Shaynna Blaze, Andrea Wilson of ARM, architect and designer Romano Adolini and Reece’s Belinda Geels.

Reece established the Bathroom Innovation Awards in 2005 to encourage original and innovative bathroom product design and to support emerging and established design talent.
