KBDi Kitchen Designer of the Year: Maddalena Fiorasi

A stunning line-up of kitchens vied for state and national titles in the KBDi Designer Awards in 2021, with the category proudly sponsored by Multitap by InSinkErator. In this feature, we’re introducing the member who took out the coveted title of KBDi Australian Kitchen Designer of the Year and showcasing her spectacular project.

Maddalena Fiorasi - KBDi Award Winning Designer


Maddalena Fiorasi studied architecture in Venice before working in Europe for several years. When she moved to Australia, Maddalena pursued her passion for residential design, studying at Sydney’s Enmore Design Centre. Her dedication to her studies was acknowledged with a student award in 2018 and earned her a complimentary membership (and serendipitous introduction) to the Kitchen & Bathroom Designers Institute of Australia.

Both KBDi and our education partners TAFE NSW were delighted to see this connection come full circle. Maddalena earned herself the titles of First Time Entrant Award Winner, KBDi Kitchen Designer of the Year — NSW and KBDi Australian Kitchen Designer of the Year with this stunning project.

This small kitchen packs a mighty big punch! The judges loved the designer’s thoughtful consideration of the client brief and the measured response to her artistic clients’ practical and aesthetic needs. The panel commended her on an integrative and functional solution and a highly professional presentation.

You’ll find Maddalena — and other designers near you — at kbdi.org.au.
