Entries for the 2019 Surface Design Awards are now open

July 2018

The organisers have just announced that entries for the 2019 Surface Design Awards are now open.  The Surface Design Awards recognise examples of progressive design and the use of innovative surfaces in projects both in the UK and internationally. The 2019 Awards will crown 13 winners across seven different categories, as well as a Supreme Award for the 'Best of the Best.' 

Each project is judged on a variety of criteria including materials used, type of surface and aesthetic design.

The 2019 judging panel will be co-chaired by Christophe Egret of Studio Egret West and Paul Priestman of PriestmanGoode. They are joined by six fellow professionals from the architecture and design world: Cany Ash, Ash Sakula Architects; James Soane, Project Orange; Jeremy Offer, Arrival; Katie Greenyer, Pentland Brands; Paul Edwards, Airbus; and Roz Barr, Roz Barr Architects.

In 2018 there were 30 finalist, 13 of these located in the UK. AL_A won the honour of becoming Surface Design Awards Supreme Winner in 2018 for their stunning project The Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT), in Lisbon. The MAAT builds upon Portugal’s rich tradition of craft and ceramics; almost 15,000 three-dimensional crackle glazed tiles articulate the façade and produce a complex surface that gives mutable readings of water, light and shadow. 

Enter now to secure your involvement in one of the most respected events of the year and to be in with a chance to win an Award. Projects can be submitted by the client, architect or designer, surface supplier or their representative. Entries close Friday 28th September. Sponsors of the 2019 Awards are Business Design Centre and James Latham.
