Surface Design Awards

Mick Jordan, editor of Mix Interiors, hosted the Surface Design Awards 2017, which took place on the last day of the show. The Broad, designed by Arup and Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Gensler, was named as the Supreme Winner.

The awards recognise examples of progressive design and the use of innovative surfaces in projects both in the UK and internationally. A total of 33 projects were named as finalists for the 2017 awards, with 45 per cent of shortlisted projects being from overseas.

Each project was judged on a range of criteria including the type of surface, the use of materials and aesthetic design. 13 winners were announced from seven different categories with most categories being divided into both an interior and exterior section. The winners span from seven different countries with three projects in China.
