Ceremony will Showcase First of ADDITI+ON Collection: DRINK

Finalists for the fourth Blue Badge Style Awards, the BLADES, are out! At the ceremony to announce the winners on 4 October, Blue Badge Style will showcase DRINK; an elegant glass holder for people who have their hands full.

The Blue Badge Style Awards celebrate the effort that stylish places make to attract guests with disabilities. In 2016 the most coveted award was for Best Loo; won by German Gymnasium. They’re back in the frame for 2017 along with seven other finalists, including one in Spain: Zetter Townhouse, Brook Green Pavillion, Rupert Brooke, Rick Stein (Barnes), Danni Garcia (Marbella), Ryebeck Hotel & Bad Egg.

Fiona Jarvis, Founder of Blue Badge Style: “We want everyone to be effortlessly independent. So our Awards recognise stylish places that make an effort for people with disabilities. DRINK means that when they get there, they can circulate independently. Without spilling a drop!”.

To see DRINK in action & find out who wins, come along to the Awards ceremony on 4 October at Lutyens. People with disabilities go free and tickets for the ceremony are available at EventBrite for a nominal fee. The Blue Badge Style Awards are supported by Bespoke Access Awards and Hewi.
