THEME 2023 Collaborate

By bringing together the Norwegian design and interior industry, Designers' Saturday serves as an important facilitator for new collaborations. Collaborations across disciplines result in higher quality products and services that endure and better meet consumer needs. In the context of the times we live in, a world filled with unrest and rigid divisions, it is especially important to demonstrate the value of community in every way possible.


With a dedicated theme, we want to see projects that can reproduce and connect the theme to spatial solutions, process or design. The Designers' Saturday Awards Best Interior shines a spotlight on the interior designer's professional competence and important role for function and flexibility, where sustainable and profitable solutions from a user-oriented point of view are central to the planning of projects. This year's edition is the 9th in a row and is one of very few awards for practitioners in the field of interior architecture - both here at home and internationally. An international jury assesses the entries, from which three will be selected to be exhibited during Designers' Saturday 2023. The three finalists and the entries will be presented during the opening of Designers' Saturday, where the jury will select the winner from the nominees.


The prize is awarded to the project-responsible interior architect with any team in projects where the interior architect and the client have developed an innovative result with regard to aesthetic expression, functionality as well as durable and long-lasting solutions. The Best Interior 2023 award is an open national competition for performers with a 3-year college education or equivalent professional background. Each practitioner can participate with up to 3 completed furnishing projects within housing, public buildings, educational buildings, catering establishments, hotels, offices, healthcare buildings, cultural buildings and retail commissioned by a customer in the period September 2021 to June 2023.

The application should consist of a concept, pictures and bio and be sent as a pdf (max 5 Mb) to [email protected]. Mark the email: Best Interior 2023.

DEADLINE: 15.06.2023


The Designers' Saturday Academy was established in 2019 and takes place in collaboration with the six most important Norwegian design education programs with support from the Culture Council. In 2021, the activities took place in the National Museum. The idea is to gather forward-looking projects, new developments in the industry and the current debates under one roof. The Designers' Saturday Awards consist of the Best Talents and Best Interior categories. The projects are assessed and judged by an independent jury, and the announcement of the competition results and awarding takes place during the official opening of Designers' Saturday in Oslo.
