The ASEAN onslaught continues indoors as 11 shortlisted entries from Southeast Asia made it to this year’s instalment of INSIDE Festival 2019. The interior design-focused awards show is a sister event to the prestigious World Architecture Festival, to be held in RAI Amsterdam from December 4 to 6, 2019. Like in WAF, where four Filipino firms got shortlist nods, Thailand and Singapore dominated the ASEAN shortlist tally. The former got five shortlisted entries from local practices and the latter nabbed three. Like in previous instalments, China dominated the list across the nine competitive categories, with Australia a far second.
