Young Designer Award

Social Responsibilities

In 2014, to celebrate our 10th anniversary, we put together an initiative that we believe has become our ultimate design intervention The Young Designer Award. The Award is open to all current students of interior design in Singapore and we hope it will inspire them to achieve ever higher standards. We have been fortunate to be supported in this endeavour by the DesignSingapore Council, AkzoNobel, Singapore Tatler Homes, Home & Décor Magazine and Houzz.
