Dezeen Awards 2020 will be "great for visibility" says judge Talenia Phua Gajardo

With less than a week to enter Dezeen Awards, Talenia Phua Gajardo, founder and CEO of digital art gallery The Artling, will be looking for "attention to detail".

Gajardo will be judging the design categories alongside Michael Anastassiades, Ivy Ross, Paola Antonelli and Daan Roosegaarde.

"I’ll be looking for attention to detail, materiality and functionality," she said.

"I think there'll be a big shift towards a more conscious, utilitarian way of fabricating and designing."

Based in Singapore, The Artling provides art and design advisory services to corporate firms, hospitality groups, property developers, interior designers and architects. The company also curates and sells contemporary Asian art and design both online and offline.

The Artling has opened a private viewing space in Shanghai, which recently held the China Design [Working Title] exhibition and displayed Jongha Choi’s De-dimension furniture collection.

"Awards programs can be great for visibility," said Gajardo.

"Anything that can help to highlight up-and-coming studios who may not have the resources or network to showcase their work is a great opportunity," she continued.
