Staron® Solid Surfaces is calling architects and designers both emerging and established to showcase their outstanding projects that feature the good looks and design versatility of Staron.
June 3rd, 2020
Staron® Solid Surfaces is recognised by architects and designers across the globe as a leader in its category providing high quality solid surfaces to commercial and residential projects at all sizes. Moreover, the design versatility means Staron can be recognised in a range of simple, complex and creative designs as best suits the client’s brief and the architect’s vision.
In addition to supporting the industry through well-established architects and designers, Staron is equally committed to supporting the students and emerging practitioners in the community. Eleven years ago the Staron® Design Awards were established to showcase the diversity, flexibility and design ingenuity of both the industry and the Staron product offering. In 2020 the awards programme returns to a keen pool of entrants.
The longstanding and overarching goal of the Staron® Design Awards is to offer a platform and exposure to students, designers and architects at all levels using Staron® in outstanding examples of homegrown architecture and design.
The Staron® Design Awards are open in three categories. They are:
The Commercial category
This category is open to any completed commercial or industrial project with a prize of $2000 plus marketing exposure for the winner. The project typologies appropriate for entry include but are not limited to: food service, education, healthcare, retail, office spaces or buildings, public spaces, museums or exhibitions.
The Residential category
This category is open to any completed house or apartment project with a prize of $1000 plus marketing exposure for the winner.

As a brand using design and innovation to shape how people experience water for over half a century, it is only fitting that sustainability is at the heart of VOLA’s ethos. With their philosophy anchored in longevity, careful management of resources and mindful operations, the original modern tap designer is protecting the planet for future generations – one timeless product at a time.
Instead of following the trend and moving offshore, Stormtech chose to keep its manufacturing operations in Australia. Combined with its quality products and commitment to innovation, this decision has been key to the specialist drainage supplier’s success.
