The winners of the 2015 Design Award were announced at Design Tasmania on Friday 28th of November as part of the Summer in design launch. The Design Tasmania Award aims to stimulate the design and production of small objects, lighting and furniture in Tasmania. In 2015 the award material focus was sustainable Tasmanian Oak in veneer or solid form.

In it’s 8th year, the award broadened its scope to include items that are designed and/or made in Tasmania. The judges included Terri Winter, co –founder and managing director of top3 by design, award winning furniture designer Laura McCusker and design director of Clemenger Tasmania, Phillip Drury. From the judge’s perspective, this was the most difficult selection of finalists in the awards history with a record number of entries.
