Michael Grubb attends [d]arc sessions as keynote speaker

[d]arc sessions, organised by [d]arc media is a series of events connecting the suppliers and specifiers who create exceptional lighting projects across the globe. The sessions take place in prestigious locations around the world, with the objective of connecting key players within projects.

[d]arc sessions Middle East, recently hosted at the luxurious InterContinental Ras Al Khaimah Mina Al Arab Resort & Spa, was a two-day event comprising of one-to-one scheduled meetings, conference talks, and a full agenda of networking and social activities.

Our Founder, Michael Grubb, was invited to attend the event as the keynote speaker. Michael shared his experience of working on the multi award winning project, Bath Abbey, which achieved incredible success at this year’s [d]arc awards, winning not only the Places – High Budget category award, but also the coveted ‘Best of the Best’ award. This is given to the project that receives the highest number of votes out of all the project category winners.

Michael Grubb Studio’s restoration of Bath Abbey helped to provide contemporary and sustainable solutions for an iconic landmark, so it’s no surprise that the project continues to receive accolades globally.

Michael commented ‘It is an absolute honour to not only be recognised at the recent [d]arc awards twice, but also to be able to share the journey of such a pivotal project for the Studio, with likeminded designers. The beautiful setting certainly helped make this a talk to remember!’

The next [d]arc sessions is scheduled to take place in Mykonos, in October.
