Overwhelming Response to Surface Design Awards 2013

An overwhelming number of entries have been received for the inaugural Surface Design Awards 2013.

Launched to mark the 10th anniversary of the Surface Design Show, the new awards will recognise creative, progressive surface design and the use of innovative surfaces in both UK and international projects. Entries to date include a cross-section of large and small companies, including architects, contractors and interior designers involved with private and public sector projects. Reflecting the international appeal of the Surface Design Show, 15% of awards entries are from companies outside of the UK.

The show’s director, Christopher Newton, said, “In addition to entries from all four UK countries, we have also received entries from Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland and Italy making the first Surface Design Awards truly international.”

There are ten awards spanning six categories for both interior and exterior surfaces: Retail, sponsored by Porcelanosa; Commercial, sponsored by Burlington Stone; Housing, sponsored by Trend; Public Building, sponsored by James Latham; Temporary Structure and the Supreme Award sponsored by Interface.

The shortlist and overall winners will be chosen by a panel of architects and designers co-chaired by Felix Mara, Editor of the AJ Specification and Vanessa Brady, President of the Society of British Interior Design. The awards ceremony will take place on 7 February 2013 at the Business Design Centre in London, the last day of the Surface Design Show.
