Staron® Design Awards 2015 Call for Entries

Don’t miss your chance to win the 2015 Staron Design Awards! Now open for entries.


February 1st, 2015

Samsung are the creators of Staron® Solid Surfaces – a quality surfaces material that is a leading product in the solid surface industry. The design versatility made possible by using Straon® is extensive, and we have seen some simple, creative and complex designs using the product nationally and internationally. Staron® has been used across the globe from small to large projects by some of the world’s leading designers and architects. To celebrate this design versatility, the Staron® Design Awards was created seven years ago, and the program has returned again in 2015.


The Staron® Design Awards are open to any designer, architect, developer, kitchen/bathroom designer, student or any other designer who has created a design project using Staron® Solid Surfaces. The design awards have been designed to create exposure for students, designers and architects using Staron® in outstanding design. The aim is to recognize and celebrate beautiful design at all levels – from a young designer’s vision, who creates concepts and ideas all the way through to an experienced designer / architect who has been in the business for years. The program is open in three categories across 2015.


The Commercial category is open to any installed commercial / industrial project with a prize of $2000 cash plus marketing exposure for the winner. The Residential category is open to any installed house / apartment project with a prize of $1000 plus marketing exposure for the winner. The Concept category is open to any ‘idea’ or concept that has not been realised yet. This can be a drawing, graphic or sketch, with a prize of $250 plus marketing exposure.


The Staron® Design Award judges have also returned in 2015. The judges panel [pictured left to right] includes Nicky Lobo from Habitus Magazine, Amanda Stanaway from Woods Bagot and Stephen Varady from Stephen Varady Associates. Each judge has a wide and varied background of experience that brings a vast wealth of knowledge to the judging process. The judges meet in Sydney when the Staron® Design Awards close to decide on a winner for each category.


The Staron® Design Awards 2015 are now open for entries till 30th September, 2015. Entry to the Staron® Design Awards are free and easy and can be made online at www.staron.com.au
