The Kitchen & Bathroom Designers Institute of Australia – in conjunction with category sponsor, Laminam – was proud to introduce an all-new KBDi Student Award in 2022.

The KBDi Designer Awards Student Program aims to identify and reward the outstanding talent of up-and-coming designers across Australia. The competition offers students an opportunity to practise the process of design (from establishing a brief to preparing concepts and working drawings), while at the same time introducing tomorrow’s designers to typical industry award procedures.

The following finalists submitted outstanding submissions of simulated projects, presented in comprehensive suites of orthographic drawings, 3D representations, mood boards etc. All should be congratulated on their nominations (as should their respective educators), and we look forward to announcing the winner at our national event on Saturday, 13 August.

Huge thanks to our Education Partners for promoting this competition to their cohorts, and much appreciation to the Award Sponsor, Laminam.
