Austaron Surfaces are excited to announce that the Staron® Design Awards are back for 2017.

The awards are open to any designer, architect, developer, kitchen/bathroom designer, student or any other designer who has created a design project using Staron® Solid Surfaces. The design awards have been designed to create exposure for students, designers and architects using Staron® in outstanding design. The aim is to recognize and celebrate beautiful design at all levels – from a young designer’s vision, who creates concepts and ideas all the way through to an experienced designer / architect who has been in the business for years. The program is open in three categories across 2017 – Commercial, Residential and Concept.

The Staron® Design Award judges have also returned in 2017. The judges panel includes Sophia Watson from Indesign, Amanda Stanaway from Woods Bagot and Stephen Varady from Stephen Varady Associates. Each judge has a wide and varied background of experience that brings a vast wealth of knowledge to the judging process.

The Staron® Design Awards 2017 will be open for entries 1 May –  30 September, 2017. Entry to the Staron® Design Awards are free and easy and can be made online at
