The shortlist for The Object at the 2023 INDE.Awards provides the opportunity to view the latest in furniture and lighting.
July 5th, 2023
Our lives are filled with objects, from the ubiquitous to one of a kind, but one thing is certain, great design is what really matters in all that surrounds us and in what we use.
Tables, chairs, sofas, lighting, acoustic panels and new ideas in shower grates comprise this year’s The Object shortlist at the 2023 INDE.Awards. Each object has complex thinking in its design and sustainability at its heart. While each one is desirable and raises the bar on creativity, the shortlisted in The Object this year are a stellar group that brings beauty, form and function to the fore.
The Object category shows how great design can impact our lives for the better, while also being sensitive to our environment. These objects are authentic, made to enhance living and also stand the test of time.

Alhambra Table by Daniel Boddam, Australia
