Calling for the next generation’s innovative and practical designers, the American Standard Design Award 2023 has opened submissions across the Asia Pacific.
30 August, 2022
‘A Home to Love, A Space for Everyone’. This is the 2023 American Standard Design Award’s (ASDA) theme. And with a rise across the Asia Pacific for multi-generational living, designers are met with new challenges around privacy, comfort and accessibility. This new reality from the pandemic is what the ASDA wants to explore, and through the next generation, inspire these changes.
Antoine Besseyre Des Horts, leader of LIXIL Global Design in Asia, underpins the ASDA’s purpose and call for tertiary applicants: “For over 140 years, American Standard has continuously raised the bar in delivering bathroom solutions that combines purposeful designs and pioneering technologies. With our deep industry and design expertise, we are delighted to collaborate with leading architects and designers to launch ASDA 2023.”
“American Standard has been trusted for generations for its progressive and dependable products, and we chose this year’s ASDA theme to inspire student designers to create an inviting multi-generational bathroom space in the home that every generation will love whilst competing against their peers across the APAC region.”
With over 3,000 entries submitted in this year’s ASDA across the Asia Pacific, next year’s awards promote the relevance of trends across the design world. For 2023, ASDA calls for entries in the ‘Residential Bathroom Space Design’ category. In multi-generational living, a balance of hygiene, convenience and aesthetics for all ages is essential in today’s landscape.
The ASDA 2022’s grand prize winner for the Residential Bathroom Space Design, Lê Đức Thinh, encourages anyone eligible to enter, stating, “The ASDA provides a great platform for design enthusiasts to apply our knowledge and learnings into real-world scenarios. The opportunity to present our ideas to the industry’s top professionals was highly motivating and offered valuable insight into crafting thoughtful and unique designs.”
The ASDA 2023 is open to Year 2 and above tertiary design school students from ten countries across the Asia Pacific. The competition will accept entry submissions from 24 August 2022 to 15 January 2023. For more information, click here.
