The IDEA gala is this month – Tickets on sale!


You are warmly invited to join us for an evening of celebration as we recognise the best in Australian design at the Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) 2022.

This year’s tickets are available on Eventbrite charges. Buy yours now.

The winners of IDEA 2022 will be announced at the Timber Yard in Melbourne on Thursday 24 November 2022.

There’s also another reason to celebrate – It’s our 20th birthday!

We can’t wait to bring the industry together for an evening that promises to be a night full of sumptuous Indonesian-inspired food, cocktails by Archie Rose, beer by Moo Brew, wine by Marnong Estate, amazing live music, great company and the very best of Australian architecture and interior design.

The IDEA 2021 gala was held at Sydney’s Royal Randwick.

We’re particularly excited to see who takes home the 2022 Designer of the Year award, with industry heavyweights Hassell, Bates Smart, Russell & George, Luchetti Krelle, Flack Studio, and Simone Haag all vying for the night’s top prize.

This year’s Emerging Designer promises to be a nail-biter too with Catherine de Meur Interiors, SOUL SHAPES – Mel Sherwell, Brahman Perera, Elvin Tan Design, Alter Space Interiors, Smac Studio, Studio Kate, Anthology, Linda Harbak Design, Studio Jigen, and Léo Terrando representing the very best up-and-comers in the industry.

We’ll also be revealing this year’s Gold Medal recipient – an accolade given in recognition of those practitioners who have made an influential and enduring contribution to Australian design culture over the course of a career.

This year’s amazing panel of judges – Eva SueSarah-Jane Pyke, Nina Maya, Alexander Lotersztain, Pascale Gomes-McNabb, (2021 Designer of the Year) Yasmine GhoniemWilliam Smart, and Sustainability judge Valerie Saavedra Lux, got together in August to pick the winners, but the rest of us will have to wait until the night!

We look forward to seeing you and celebrating Australian design!

From L–R: Cult Design founder Richard Munao, 2022 IDEA Designer of the Year Yasmine Ghoniem, and 2021 IDEA Designer of the Year David Flack.
