What are the secrets to success? What gives designers the edge to take home INDE.Awards gold? THIS WEEK at the inaugural FRONT, meet three award-winning design teams as they explain just what gave them the edge.
August 7th, 2018
This year, the INDE.Awards continued the bold story of design in the APAC region with a Gala in Singapore on 22 June. It was a celebration of outstanding design, architecture, material and culture. It was an opportunity to knit together a stronger fabric for our regional industry – and at FRONT, it’s your exclusive opportunity to take a deep dive into how these award-winning designers sculpted gold from stone.
Moderator and Indesign editor Alice Blackwood will be hosting this exclusive one-off event to see what the design teams of Collins and Turner, Foolscap Studio, and BVN did to stand out from the pack and earn INDE gold.
Taking over Carriageworks 9-10 August, FRONT is an evolution of the traditional trade show format and is FREE for professionals to attend. FRONT has been created to bring all the key commercial players together into an innovative, business-focused event.
The 2018 INDE. Awards Project Presentations is being presented as a part of the FRONT FORUM, brought to you by Gaggenau.
For this event, we’ve carefully crafted a seminar series to offer something for everyone – we want to spark debate. We want to get you thinking and fill your creative mind with knowledge. And here, we want to inspire and demonstrate what truly great design is.
Huw Turner, Founder of Collins and Turner – Winner of The Social Space INDE.Award for Barangaroo House
“Barangaroo House elegantly reconciles highly complex design and planning challenges with the creation of a simple striking building form, a new architectural object representative of Sydney’s pre-eminent role as a world city with a great love of the water, hospitality, and fun dining”
Adele Winteridge, Director, and Madeline Freeman, Senior Interior Architect, of Foolscap Studio – Winner of The Shopping Space INDE.Award for Domaine Chandon
“A complete overhaul of Chandon Australia’s cellar door, Foolscap Studio drew upon the stunning surrounding landscape as it shifted through the seasons, the designers applied a fearless approach to the use of colour in the interior; culminating in the delivery of a fresh and relevant environment for the existing loyalists, as well as a new market”
Brian Clohessy, Sydney Studio Director of BVN – Winner of The Work Space INDE.Award for the CSIRO Synergy Building
‘Synergy is a new centre for CSIRO on the Black Mountain campus in Canberra. The reinvention of the workplace is the central design tenet, merging a place of scientific research with the contemplative necessity of write-up and reflection that is unambiguously Australian within an international scientific milieu”
There’s only one place you can see these four award-winning powerhouses of design dig deep into what turns a project from the ordinary to the extraordinary… and that’s FRONT. But one day away now – registration is still open, but not for long! So head over and get ready for a game-changing experience.
Keep up to date with the latest and greatest from our industry BFF's!
We sit down with Astro Lighting’s Cofounder and Design Director, James Bassant, to talk about the design philosophy fuelling the international success of the brand, the importance of being accessible – and why Astro never aspired to be achingly cool.
