There is only one week left until we reveal the Dezeen Awards 2023 winners at a sold-out event next Tuesday in central London.
Taking place at Shoreditch Electric Light Station on 28 November, we will announce the winners of this year’s Dezeen Awards, selected from more than 4,800 entries from 94 countries.
Laura Jackson to host the ceremony
Broadcaster Laura Jackson will host the seventh Dezeen Awards ceremony. Jackson recently presented the Channel 4 series The Great Big Tiny Design Challenge as well as Great British Beach Huts alongside Dezeen Awards 2022 judge Jay Blades.
She is also the founder of the online homeware platform Glassette and contributes to Elle Decoration UK as a monthly columnist.
Jackson will present trophies to the Designers of the Year, as well as announce the winner of the Bentley Lighthouse Award winner.
She will also present awards to the overall best architecture, interiors, design and sustainability project of the year, selected from the winners in each of the four sectors.
Show design and direction will be by London-based The Unlimited Dream Company for this year’s event. The studio led by Harrison Smith and George Thomson has produced shows for global acts and brands including Alicia Keys, Loyle Carner, Pa Salieu, Obongjayar, Sam Fender, Ferrari and Samsung.
The evening will feature a live performance by percussionists Gosia Kepa and Northern Irish timpanist and percussionist Connor Chambers.
Kepa and Chambers have composed a duet to be played on a Ceramophone, a unique wooden percussion instrument made with porcelain tiles tuned to the pentatonic scale – a musical scale with five notes per octave.
Designed by architect Simon Astridge and music producer James Mason and crafted by boat builder and musician Jerry Flemming, the Ceramophone was created for Sounds of the Earth – a series of events that investigated sound in space.
Sounds of the Earth was a collaboration between Dezeen Awards sponsor Solus and Italian ceramics manufacturer Mirage.
