Organizers of the Australian Interior Design Awards have announced the jury for the 2022 edition of the premier awards program for interior design in Australia.
“As always, this year’s judging panel is comprised of some of our country’s most innovative and creative design minds, with the stature of the panel reflecting the quality of the entries submitted across each category,” said Geraldine Maher, awards convenor and director of Maher Design.
The 2022 jury comprises Madeleine Blanchfield (direcotr of Madeleine Blanchfield Architects, NSW); Caroline Diesner (principal of Hassell, Qld); Stuart Krelle (director of Luchetti Krelle, NSW); Albert Mo (director of Architects EAT, Vic), Rosie Morley (principal of Fender Katsalidis, Vic), Jade Nottage (director of Tom Mark Henry, NSW); Beatrix Rowe (principal of Beatrix Rowe Interior Design, Vic); and Peter Walker (director, Cumulus Studio, Tas). John Gertsakis will again act as sustainbility advisor.
The Australian Interior Design Awards is judged across seven primary categories of retail design, hospitality design, workplace design, public design, installation design, as well as residential design and residential decoration. Outside of the primary categories, there are also two optional categories of emerging interior design practice and sustainability advancement, as well as an invitation only category of interior design impact, which celebrates the transformative effect that design can have on a building’s occupants and the wider community.
Submissions for the 2022 awards are now open until 30 March. “Year after year, we find that the submissions continue to push the existing boundaries of design and inventiveness, and we expect 2022 to be no different. We can’t wait to view the work that presents itself from Australia’s best and brightest designers,” Maher said.
“Following the last two years, we are thrilled to return to the traditional awards format for this year’s program. However, if there’s anything we’ve observed over the course of the pandemic, it’s the tenacity and resilience of the Australian design community.”
“We have seen designers transform challenging circumstances into opportunities for creative growth, delivering innovation beyond what we previously imagined, and redefining the notion of ‘normal’ as our behaviours, habits, and interactions shift. We are eager to see this represented in the 2022 program.”
The Australian Interior Design Awards is delivered by Design Institute of Australia (DIA) and Architecture Media’s Artichoke magazine. The 2022 awards is supported by Dulux, Space, Subzero and Wolf, Laminex, and Interiors Australia.
