IDEA 2022 Emerging Designer of the Year winner Brahman Perera, Hospitality, Residential Interior Curation, Overall Project winner David Flack, and Colour winner Simone Haag.

Any project completed between January 2022 and June 2023 is eligible for this year’s awards so long as it hasn’t been entered in IDEA previously.

There are 15 categories open for entry this year, ranging from the best use of colour to the best hospitality project, the best single residential to the best institutional, international and public space. There are also categories for object and furniture design.

As well as choosing a winner for all these categories, our jury of seven industry experts will also be awarding four special awards. You can nominate yourself for two of these – best Emerging Designer (for practices and studios under five years) and the Sustainability award.

The other two – Designer of the Year and Overall Project Winner – are chosen from the submitted projects.

Keep an eye out for the first judges’ announcements soon.

The 2022 IDEA awards attracted more than 500 entries from across the country, making it one of the oldest and largest independent awards programs in the Australian interior design industry.

The winners included Unispace, Flack Studio, Russell & George, Melbourne Design Studios, Simone Haag, and Clare Cousins Architects – all of whom received a trophy designed by Axolotl.
