Dezeen reveals the world's 57 most striking interiors shortlisted for Dezeen Awards 2022

Dezeen has announced the interiors shortlist for this year's Dezeen Awards, which includes interiors by Kelly Wearstler, Cox Architecture and Studio MK27.

The 57 shortlisted projects, which are in the running for awards in 11 different interiors project categories, are located in 24 different countries including Ukraine, Japan, Canada, South Korea, and Sweden.

The top three represented countries are UK with 12 shortlisted entries followed by China with seven and both USA and Australia with four.

Five projects are shortlisted in each interiors category except the small workspace interior and apartment interior categories, which have six, including a multi-storey skatepark in a seaside town in Kent and a refurbished cinema with pistachio-green arches in the heart of Berlin.

The shortlist also includes a renovated hotel in a Beijing hutong, a micro-apartment in Belsize Park wrapped in translucent panels and a restaurant with a granite gravel floor in São Paulo.

All shortlists announced this week

The shortlists were scored by our interiors jury which includes London-based interior designer and creative director Charlotte Taylor, French architect India Mahdavi and Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto of Milan-based Studiopepe.

The architecture shortlist was announced yesterday, the design shortlist will be revealed tomorrow, the sustainability and media shortlists on Thursday and the studio shortlist on Friday.
