Join us in welcoming Zenith Interiors as the Official Platinum Sponsor of the 2017 INDE.Awards!
February 7th, 2017
When the INDE.Awards of 2017 was launched three months ago, its mission declared to recognise our region’s design on the global stage. It’s a big call … so we knew that the INDEs needed some big support.
It is staggering to take note of the extent to which some of this planet’s most progressive buildings, spaces, objects, proposals and people stemmed from the Asia Pacific region. We all too frequently designate international prowess to be the preserve of our European or American counterparts – and while they have undoubtedly contributed greatly to the global story of design, the creative practitioners across Asia Pacific have played an enormous part in elevating our region to such a leading-edge level of breaking barriers and achieving tomorrow-ready design.
The 2017 INDE.Awards seeks to recognise those achievements. Pushing us to new frontiers and actively creating a better world, we look to our region’s leading design-thinkers to celebrate their work in an ongoing narrative of excellence. As such, we’re excited to announce that Zenith Interiors – the 60-years-young commercial design powerhouse – have joined us as the INDE.Awards 2017 Official Platinum Sponsor!
Asia Pacific’s collective design story is at the very heart of both Zenith Interiors and the INDEs’ combined ethos. Of the former, Zenith’s regional reach is staggering. Across Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Hong Kong, Singapore (and Shanghai very, very soon), Team Zenith’s co-ordinated approach to specification blends locally-designed and globally-desired product with regionally sensitive awareness to the diverse nuances of nations across the Asia Pacific world.
Throughout the 2017 INDE.Awards programme, Zenith Interiors will be activating this pan-regional approach for the benefit of our diverse and broad creative practitioners. From Singapore to Perth and Auckland to Hong Kong, they are seeking to elevate our region’s designs to a scale heretofore unseen. With the support of Zenith Interiors’ far-reaching and hands-on involvement throughout Asia Pacific, the INDE.Awards commemorates the home-grown bravery, innovative and local spirit of all architecture and design achievements on our collective doorstep.
