The House Collection is the first house range of trophies released by Design Awards, and is the culmination of years of experience designing and hand-crafting for some of most prestigious awards in Australia and across the world. The collection embodies our ethos to create beautiful awards in a considered and environmentally conscious way – with a dedication to creativity, quality, and craftsmanship. Separate to our bespoke awards, these are awards which have already been pre-manufactured in our workshop in order to reduce turn around times.
Hand made in small quantities by craftsmen in our Melbourne and Sydney workshops, awards in our House Collection are made with the same love and attention to detail as the rest of our bespoke awards and trophies. True to our nature as custom makers, these awards are far from off-the-shelf, with material, colours and finishes still up to you.

Handcrafted using only salvaged, sustainably sourced Australian timber, the Forma is one of our most environmentally conscious – not to mention most popular – awards. Formed in an elegant asymmetrical spear shape, the design is a sharp, contemporary adaptation of the traditional pyramid trophy. Finished with a natural wax, the Forma is designed to celebrate the individual characteristics of the timber. Complete with a matte black floating metal tab, each Forma is made to be proudly displayed by any kind of winner.
An inviting and tactile combination of salvaged, sustainable Australian timber and clear acrylic, the Split Cumulus is a striking and versatile award. Set in a classic split circle form, the design is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional silver plate. With all material hand carved by our expert artisan craftsmen, each detail has been lovingly considered in the construction – from the exposed timber grain to the polish of the acrylic.
A refined rectangular shape constructed from an inviting combination of materials, the Tower is one of our classic designs. Strikingly pared back with a gentle sensibility and a satisfying weight, the Tower is an understated centrepiece for any awards ceremony. Made from salvaged Australian hardwood hand-picked by our artisan craftsmen and individually whittled to match it’s metal counterpart, hours of attention and consideration goes into every single Tower.
