These 12 Innovators Are Forging The Path For Sustainable Design In Australia
TDF Design Awards
Though it seems like a world away now, the climate strikes in September 2019 felt like a flashpoint in the contemporary environmental movement. Even though sustainability can be tricky to navigate in the design space – a sphere that revolves around manufacturing and construction – it is also an industry well-equipped to produce some of the most innovative solutions to this global problem.
Supported by Country Road, the Sustainable Design award is the most diverse category in the The Design Files + Laminex Design Awards. It celebrates the thinkers, inventors and creators designing effective, thoughtful ways to combat human involvement in climate change. From small-scale urban compost systems to closed-loop terrazzo made from construction waste, these micro-solutions combine enterprise with a social conscience, and most importantly, change the way we think about our everyday contributions to the environment. Basically, this is where all the cool kids are!
Co-founder of closed-loop textile company Seljak (and last year’s winner!) Karina Seljak will join founder of Breathe Architecture, Jeremy McLeod, on the judging panel to adjudicate the winner. And they know a thing or two about sustainable design!
