Winners revealed: 2018 DIA South Australia/Northern Territory Awards

The Design Institute of Australia (DIA) announced the winners of the 2018 South Australia/Northern Territory Awards at a celebration on 3 November held at The Manor at Basket Range in Adelaide.

Now in its 26th year, the awards cover built environment, communication and product design categories. The awards also see another “Design Icon” added to the list of 25 that were named at last year’s awards in honour of the awards’ 25th anniversary.

Historic Adelaide furniture manufacturer T.H Brown was announced as the 26th Design Icon. Perhaps best known for the Danish and Martelle Bar Stool ranges, Brown’s “immeasurable contribution to South Australian furniture design” was recognized with the award.
