After ten months of planning (and plenty of postponements – thanks 2020!), the biggest night on the TDF calendar happened last night. It was strange to hold our second EVER The Design Files + Laminex Design Awards via livestream due to these ‘unprecedented times’, but nevertheless, we certainly felt the celebratory spirit in the air as so many of you joined us last night for our online awards ceremony!
The TDF team would like to say an ENORMOUS thank you to everyone involved in making this program happen. From the 500+ entries, 25 judges and 119 finalists across ten categories, we were blown away by the outrageous talent our design community holds. We always knew you were good, but seeing it all in one place really brings it home!
We couldn’t have done it without our incredible sponsors: De’Longhi, Phoenix Tapware, Brickworks, Country Road and Jardan. And, of course, our presenting partner, Laminex. Once again, the incredible Amanda Dziedzic made our one-of-a-kind glass trophies, as well as some paper weights for some of the lucky viewers who tuned in to the public broadcast!
