GROHE India Recognises Excellence with the Third Edition of NDTV Design and Architecture Awards
New Delhi, Delhi , India

GROHE India, the no. 1 international sanitary fittings brand in the country and the Founding Partner of NDTV Design & Architecture Awards announces the third edition of the felicitation ceremony. The event will be held in the month of January 2016 in TAJ WEST END, Bengaluru. The awards have received a tremendous response to their last two editions and this year too, the event promises to offer a vital and powerful platform to India’s design and architecture community to showcase its compelling work and receive due recognition for the headway it’s been steadily making. 
GROHE’s brand philosophy is firmly ingrained in the values of innovation, elegant aesthetics, enduring style and subtle luxury. It is also the founding partner of the World Architecture Festival and has now carried forward this legacy by presenting the prestigious Design and Architecture Awards, hosted by India’s premium media conglomerate, NDTV. The affiliation of GROHE with NDTV for these awards ties up seamlessly with GROHE’s brand proposition of creating homes and home spaces that are timeless epitomes of aesthetics and sustainability.
The first and the second edition of NDTV Design & Architecture Awards were hailed as the best by the architect guild for its rigour, discipline, credibility and an impeccable evening event itself. The 2nd edition of the awards received huge appreciation by the fraternity, with over 1000 entries being submitted by India’s most talented architects and design firms. At a sterling gathering, held in Mumbai in February 2015, the winners were facilitated by leading artists, architects and renowned personalities. This year too, the awards will take a collective view of the jury and recognise architectural excellence and innovation that our country has to offer.
Renu Misra, Managing Director, GROHE India said, “We were extremely pleased with the stupendous response received for both the editions of the GROHE NDTV Design & Architecture Awards. This time, too, we are equally excited to offer an ideal platform for recognising path-breaking innovations and talent in the area of design, architecture and construction in both the residential and commercial spheres. Through awards such as these, we wish to provide greater impetus for India’s architecture and design professionals to push the envelope of achievement and creativity. ”
Vikram Chandra, Group CEO, NDTV said, “We are glad to partner with a world-renowned brand such as GROHE to present the third edition of the awards programme in the Design and Architecture categories. With the Grohe India-NDTV Design and Architecture Awards, we aim to provide an important opportunity to every architect and interior designer to be duly recognised. The platform serves as the best way for them to reveal their talent and adds to the vibrancy of the industry as a whole.”
Design and Architecture has now evolved to become the oasis of households, hotels and spas, with sophisticated design led products that perform to the highest standards. The highly-coveted GROHE NDTV Design and Architecture Awards focus on the complexities of building projects from a design, aesthetic, sustainability and conservation perspective, as well as the local context.
