CELEBRATING DESIGN EXCELLENCE

This year saw a phenomenal volume of people entering the INDEX Design Awards, showing that despite a turbulent year, the interior design and fit-out industry is still active and thriving under the design challenges they have faced.

Take a look at the INDEX Design Awards Finalists. Follow the big winners reveal taking place on 31st August 2021 from 7pm until 11pm at the Ritz-Carlton, DIFC.

The INDEX Design Awards celebrates innovative interiors projects, the agencies and the people behind them. Open to interior design, architecture and fit-out firms and exceptional out-of-the-box leaders within the design community. It is the central networking event of Middle East Design & Hospitality Week, bringing 350 leaders of the regional design community together to celebrate the most creative and effective work delivered during 2020.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

The INDEX Design Awards will be postponed until the 31st of August 2021.

Due to recent changes in COVID-19 restrictions laid out by the Government of Dubai, guests attending award ceremonies need to be fully vaccinated prior to attending. Following comprehensive discussions with many shortlisted candidates and sponsors, we were not confident that enough people were vaccinated to make the event as successful as it deserves to be. The best course of action for the majority has been to postpone the event allowing more people the time to complete their vaccinations, which while disappointing and unfortunate, means that we can all celebrate together in person again.

The new date, timing and venue for the awards ceremony will be Tuesday, 31st August 2021, 7PM-11PM, The Ritz-Carlton, DIFC.
