October 3, 2022

Celebrated designer Jean-Michel Gathy, the founder of Kuala Lumpur-based multidisciplinary firm Denniston, has been recognised with the Outstanding Contribution honour by AHEAD, the awards for hospitality experience and design.

The awards event that was held in September highlighted Mr Gathy’s contribution to the industry for the last 40 years. His globally-celebrated work can be seen in well-known brands across the luxury hospitality sector, with names including Cheval Blanc, Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, One&Only, and the recently opened Aman New York.

AHEAD comprises four regional annual awards programmes concluding in a global finale. The series celebrates the achievements of those shaping the hospitality industry across Asia, the Americas, Middle East-Africa and Europe, before the regional winners go head-to-head at AHEAD Global to establish an ultimate winner in each category.

This year’s edition received over 100 regional entries spanning 13 countries. The entries were judged by a panel of leading hoteliers, architects, interior designers, and industry commentators narrowed down their winners into 17 categories. Leading names from the APAC region’s hospitality industry came together to celebrate this year’s finalists and unveil the winners. Over the course of the ceremony, some of the region’s most compelling hospitality projects were showcased, demonstrating an array of original design concepts that debuted over the past year.
