It’s an immensely proud moment to receive another two awards for our work. Radford is based on one of my father’s own designs and bears his middle name and Q Block now has design awards from all over the world. We’re delighted.”

Both Dineus and German Design Award ceremonies were held during the world’s leading trade fair for the industry, Ambiente, in Frankfurt. Ambiente gives a sense of what is shaping the global market and is where the leading manufacturers and buyers of the Dining, Giving and Living sectors gather annually.

Speaking about the Q Block, the German Design jury said:

With its rounded ends on either side and superb use of materials such as wood and stainless-steel the striking shape of this knife block makes it a visually arresting element of any kitchen. A meticulously designed product that’s also notable for the ingenious form-and-function related details integrated into it.

Speaking about the Radford Cutlery range, the Dineus jury said: 

Classic, modern, versatile - three words that aptly describe the Radford cutlery set by Robert Welch Designs. Calssic yet modern. With its long prongs and blades, the award-winner in the 'Cutlery/Classic' category translates classic Georgian styles into the modern age. Radford also displays versatility in its application. Widely considered to be the world's largest stainless-steel cutlery collection with a whopping 65 individual pieces, it caters to users of all ages and the most diverse of occasions.
