Varlet Wins the Ancillary Awards at the Restaurant & Bar Product Design Awards


October 2018

Varlet One from the Spanish company Varlet was the winner of the Ancillary Award during the Restaurant & Bar Product Design Awards ceremony held in London on October 4th, 2018.

Varlet pursues the mission to develop beautiful products that give solutions to the nuisance of where to put a handbag when eating at a restaurant and the winner Varlet One is one of the company’s refined handbag holders for hospitality.

Varlet teamed up with award-winning designer Andreu Carulla to develop Varlet One.

Varlet is a young company created in 2017 by entrepreneur Pilar Munné and has made a strong debut in the hospitality furniture market by winning two design awards this year, the Accessory Award at the Hospitality Design Awards in New York City in June 2018 and now the Ancillary Award from the Restaurant & Bar Product Design Awards in London.

The combination of beautiful and quality products and their obvious need in the market has allowed Varlet to already be present in some of the best hotels and high end restaurants in Europe and Middle East.

“ We are so pleased about this award. Restaurant and Bar Design Awards are one of the most highly regarded awards in the industry and winning the Ancillary Award is a very exciting milestone for us. It demonstrates that the industry is now acknowledging the need for varlets in restaurants and recognizes the value contribution of our product.” Said founder Pilar Munné.

Varlet vision is for varlets to become a common furniture piece in every restaurant in order to solve the inconvenience of having to place handbags on the floor or on one’s lap when eating.
