The Interieur Awards is an essential part of the Belgium-based Biennale Interieur programme, established in Kortrijk in 1968. This competition has achieved a strong international presence as a launch pad for young designers thanks to an influential internationally acclaimed jury and direct access to design manufacturers and producers.

Many established designers started their careers at Biennale Interieur; it was at Interieur that a young Maarten Van Severen was spotted by Vitra, which in turn lead to a very beneficial collaboration for both. More recently, the Belgium duo, Muller Van Severen (one half Van Severen's son, Hannes, and one half Hannes's partner Fien Muller) were commissioned by Interieur to realise one of the Biennale's Project Rooms - to international acclaim. Their work was shown as part of Designs of the Year 2013 at the Design Museum, London.

The Biennale is far from a big, over-hyped design fair. It is known for high quality content, a balance of commercial and cultural happenings, a loyal, established industry following and a small, but perfectly formed nature, due in part to the easily accessible location in Belgium.
