The prestigious Interior Design Confederation Singapore (IDCS) just announced the Design Excellence Awards (DEA) 2022, one of Asia Pacific’s most highly anticipated interior design competitions. The DEA sets out to recognise the best in commercial, residential and public design in Singapore and Asia Pacific, championing design excellence and promoting high-quality interior design locally and regionally.

For the ninth cycle of the Awards, IDCS is bringing back 26 of the most popular award categories across two competition tracks: Interior Design Excellence Awards (I-DEA) for professional designers and firms and Spatial Design Awards (SPADE) for students. This way, the awards continue to endorse and celebrate the achievements of design professionals and students alike.

Going into the Design Excellence Awards 2022, IDCS President Mr Cameron Woo encourages designers to “submit projects that provide a unique take on our Asian sensibility in the built environment that harkens back to a period of peace, tranquillity and freedom of expression and offers us a future of hopefulness.”
