Hungarian VarroDesign bags prestigious award in NY
Hungarian designer group VarroDesign has won a Gold Key Award in New York, the first Hungarian winner ever, in the category of Best Lobby Budget/Focused Service, for its work at the Science Hotel in Szeged, according to a press statement sent to the Budapest Business Journal today.
The Gold Key Award for Excellence in Hospitality Design is one of the most prestigious awards in the industry, distributed annually in November at a gala dinner in the Grand Ballroom of New York’s Waldorf Astoria, the press statement said. Often described as the Oscars of the hotel and hospitality industry, the awards were distributed for the 36th time, and VarroDesign had two projects nominated out of the total 506 in 21 separate categories.
“I am proud that it has been proven that hard work, a unique approach and a style independent of requirements and fashion are traits that can lead to real success in Hungary, and also internationally,” Zoltán Varró of VarroDesign said. “This is the result of team work, in which my business partner István Mercse has had a key role,” he added.
The Hungarian designer team’s other work evaluated for the awards was Budapest’s Michelin-Star Onyx Restaurant, in the category of Best Restaurant Fine Dining.
