Australian Living is officially launching the 3rd Annual International Green Interior Awards this week with the 2015 edition introducing two new award categories for product innovation and students.
The Australian-based awards program is purely focused on recognising interior designers and architects who use green interior products to create healthy spaces for their clients.
The two new categories this year include product innovation for manufacturers and creators, and student/graduate, adding to the existing categories of office, residential, retail, hospitality, healthcare, aged care and education.
The award for product innovation honours manufacturers and creators who respect the environment by providing greater choice in green interior products. The student/graduate category will encourage tomorrow’s architects and designers to make responsible decisions during product specification.
Cameron Rosen, Managing Director of Australian Living observes that the global green building and interiors industry continues to provide innovation and sustainable solutions, enabling people to benefit from healthier environments. He adds that the International Green Interior Awards provides a platform that inspires and educates all stakeholders.
Universal Magazines publisher Janice Williams commented that they are proud to see the International Green Interior Awards program going from strength to strength, and welcome the opportunity to provide a mass-market platform for a worthy cause. Universal Magazines is a partner of the Awards program.
