The Design Studio category at the 2022 INDE.Awards pays tribute to the people behind the practice name and applauds the processes that make each of the shortlisted in this category exemplars.
Recognising that everyone works differently, The Design Studio seeks to uncover the many ways that architects and designers and their teams create what they do. Whether architect, designer or modern hybrid, The Design Studio category esteems the studio that challenges the norms, thinks beyond today and creates for tomorrow.
The shortlist for The Design Studio represents diverse ways of working, each with their own signature approach, that helps deliver projects that mark them as leaders of their community. Woven Image as the supporter of The Design Studio category understands that people and process within a practice form a culture that makes it individual.
Reflecting on the shortlist this year, Alan Heath, Sales Manager, Asia Pacific, Woven Image says “I was quite pleased to see less design trends and more individualistic approaches although there seemed to be a mix of geometric shaping mixed with soft curves that worked well together. I also liked the diversity of clean, crisp, sterile lines through to opulent, rich and earthy flows.
There is symmetry with Woven Image’s ideas in the approach to geometric forms as Heath explains, “At Woven Image, the geometric shaping mixed with organic curves reflects our ceiling baffle story and our embossed range story. In addition, our Echopanel acoustic range can be custom cut to adopt any design intent to suit.”
Asked about studios that made an impression in the category Heath says, “I have two studios that stood out: Flack Studio for the opulent but beautiful “yellow” room. To describe it is awful, to view it is stunningly beautiful. The mix of geometric and organic curves just had me mesmerised and Studiobird for Monash College which was such an amazing use of acoustic material to feature the ceiling. The sharp geometry of the ceiling feature mixed with the softness of the organic furniture and drapery looked magical.”
Looking to the very near future when we will all be in Melbourne to celebrate at the INDE.Awards gala party on 4th August, Heath remarks, “I’m most looking forward to seeing all the humans together again when the winners are announced!”
And isn’t this the truth! Being together to recognise the winners of the 2022 INDE.Awards will indeed be a night to remember and we look forward to seeing you there.
