After a highly successful debut in 2013, Surface Design Show today announced the launch of Surface Design Awards 2014.  The awards champion the best progressive design and use of innovative surfaces worldwide, and are believed to be the only awards to focus exclusively on surface design.

The eleven awards include a new category that reflects light, surface and the importance of innovation. The full list of seven categories is as follows:

Retail Interior Surface                                                            Retail Exterior Surface

Commercial Interior Surface                                                   Commercial Exterior Surface

Housing Interior Surface                                                        Housing Exterior Surface

Public Building Interior Surface                                             Public Building Exterior Surface

Light and Surface Interior                                          Light and Surface Exterior

Temporary Structure                                                  Supreme Award

These international awards are open to architects, interior designers and contractors who have completed projects using exterior and interior surface materials in new, innovative and creative ways.  The judging will be chaired by Vanessa Brady, Society of British Interior Design (SBID) and Will Alsop, All Worldwide and will also include a panel of six distinguished architects and interior designers.

Brady said that an award for the best in surface design was long overdue.  “Last year there was an overwhelming response and the flood of high calibre entries was thrilling. There was no doubt that the industry was crying out for an award of this nature.  There is an extraordinary amount of innovation in surfaces, much of it unsung, and the awards provide a unique and dazzling showcase of the very best.”

The deadline for submissions is 20th September 2013 and the winners will be announced at the Surface Design Show on the 6th February 2014.

Christopher Newton of the Surface Design Show said last year’s winners embody the ambition for the Surface Design Awards to become an international showcase of trailblazing design and innovation.
