The aim of the Consumer’s Choice Award is to bring the consumer to the heart of platinum design. River Mounts’ ‘Peka’ tri-set was one of five designs nominated for the award, and received nearly twice as many votes as the other entries.
Design and operations manager Manoj Parmar commented: “The design is brand new and to get such recognition from consumers as well as the judges on the Trail is really exciting.”
Designer of the tri-sets, Kelly Jenner, added: “We turned the design around really quickly and, while we thought it was going to work, you never really know how it’s going to be received. To have such a response from the judges who have such expertise was breath-taking. We’re really looking forward to next year’s Trail.”
